Vrakas Attended the AICPA Employee Benefits Conference

Vrakas Audit Managers, Melissa Karis and Sara Johnson, attended the 2017 National Conference on employee Benefit Plans hosted by the AICPA in Nashville, Tennessee.

Melissa and Sara attended numerous sessions over the course of the three day event that were put on by regulators and other expert practitioners. By attending this conference, they were able to further enhance their technical knowledge and also learn more about new and upcoming standards.

Each year Vrakas attends this conference as a way to stay up to date as a team, and to be able to pass along the information to our clients.

Did you know that Vrakas performs over sixty employee benefit plan audits each year? Who needs an employee benefit plan? The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) requires employee benefit plans with 120 or more participants to have an independent audit as part of their obligation to file their annual Form 5500 series return/report.
