"Disaster Preparedness is not something most accountants think of as a value add service for their clients.  Leann Hackman-Carty's presentation at our recent conference has changed that; many of the delegates build plans for how they can bring this valuable information back to their local communities. Understanding that no one can predict when a disaster will take place yet being prepared for it can be as easy as completing a shot multi-page questionnaire and keeping that information in a secure location so it can be retrieved when needed." - PBA Alberta President, Margo Desmarais FPBA
