AUSTIN, TEXAS – JGS gave back-to-back lectures about financial statements at the National Beer Wholesalers Association conference on Monday, August 6.
The Next Generation Success in Leadership Conference, titled after its target audience, was held in Austin, Texas from August 5 through 7.
“I believe the biggest highlight was sharing the use of case equivalents as a part of the standard financial statements,” R.J. Martucci, manager, said. “I didn’t see too many individuals familiar with this approach, which is JGS’ standard.”
Martucci teamed up with Gary Cassiello, partner at JGS. The duo was introduced by Brian Powers, vice president of client development.
The team had been preparing for the lectures for several weeks and decided to use a set of sample financial statements to guide participants. They emulated what might be provided in a college-level course, by selecting round numbers in order to illustrate common principles.
“I feel very good – very positive,” Cassiello said, following his return to the office.
Each talk lasted 45 minutes and Martucci estimates that approximately 100 guests in total attended. A brief recap of the main talking points has been added to the JGS beer distributors specialty page.
JGS plans to continue participating in NBWA events and helping clients in the beverage industry with their accounting needs.
