Presented by: Marnie Stretch, CPB

You know those kids in school who often had their hands up, excited to ask or answer a question? That was Marnie. Always eager to learn, she taught herself QuickBooks in the early 90’s when she lived in California and made a career out of it. Fast forward to the present where she’s now a proud member of the Intuit Trainer Writer Network, holds several Intuit and app partner certifications, and loves teaching others.

Marnie is a dual citizen who splits her time between Alberta, Quebec – and conferences. She has her own remote bookkeeping and advisory practice and is a former instructor at NAIT and Mohawk College. Students and customers love Marnie's energetic teaching style, impressive QuickBooks knowledge, and modern approach to bookkeeping. She was named an Insightful Accountant 2019 Top 100 ProAdvisor as well as a Top Ten 2018 Influencer in the Canadian Bookkeeping World. She's very proud of her CPB designation and is entering her second year as an IPBC board member.  

Marnie has a wicked-smart son who is in his first year of science at MacEwan University. In the summer, she likes to kayak in the Rocky Mountains or ride around town on her Vespa alongside her fiancé, who is teaching her French – by far one of the most challenging things she’s ever tried to learn!

Regional Network Chair: Connie Sparks, CPB

Cost is free - You are responsible for your own meal and beverage

Dining out with food allergies can be a challenge, but it can be done safely. The best way to stay safe is by being informed and communicating your needs.

Before you go: ‘Be Informed and Inform’.
We recommend contacting the restaurant ahead of time and talking to the restaurant manager or Kitchen manager.

At the Restaurant: ‘Communicate’.
Talk to your server upon arriving and to the Regional Network Chair to advise them of your food allergies.

Block out time on your calendar for this event right now. Why? Just imagine networking with some of the top bookkeepers in the country. Imagine the chance to be on the fast track to a more lucrative practice, to being a certified professional bookkeeper (CPB) and to receiving greater professional recognition inside and outside of this network.

Regional Meetings are a vital part of that formula for success.

They're a unique chance to combine learning – a guest speaker shares expertise that's sure to make your work a bit easier – with fun and powerful networking.

Attending this meeting qualifies for one Professional Development Credit

Each meeting includes a guest speaker with a Q&A session; a discussion among the attendees about a marketing topic, a challenge someone may be facing, or another topic important to you; and networking. Non-members are welcome to attend two meetings to evaluate IPBC. Afterwards, you must join to participate in Regional Meetings.

Our meetings are "Scent Free” and business casual attire is appreciated. This is a business meeting. Please, turn off your cell phone before entering the room, and sorry no children allowed.

We look forward to seeing you there!
