RKL’s 2016 Tax/A&A Seminar Offers Timely Regulatory and Economic Insights

Amidst significant upcoming regulatory changes and a shift in the political landscape, RKL provided timely updates and valuable insights to nearly 500 tax and accounting professionals and financial executives from across the region at the latest installment of its annual Tax and A&A seminar last week.

The full-day educational and networking event, held at the Lancaster County Convention Center on Tuesday, December 6, offered attendees to gain valuable continuing professional education credits and engage with RKL experts and regional business leaders.

This year’s agenda was packed with important guidance to help attendees prepare for major regulatory changes on the horizon like lease accounting, revenue recognition and government accounting standards. RKL tax experts also previewed the potential impact political changes in Washington D.C. could have on personal and business taxation. In a timely keynote address, noted political historian and commentator Dr. G. Terry Madonna examined the current presidential transition as well as the political dynamic in the nation and the Commonwealth.

Attendees enjoyed a variety of trivia and drawings throughout the day, with lucky winners taking home prizes ranging from local retail and restaurant gift cards to an Amazon Echo and a vacation voucher. Guests and RKL team members concluded the robust agenda with a cocktail reception that gave everyone a chance to toast the holiday season. The RKL team thanks all the presenters and attendees of the 2016 installment of one the most-anticipated educational and networking events in the region.
