What we're about
The members of the Portland Woodard Group are some of the best Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisors in the country.
Our group's mission is to foster a supportive, informative, collaborative community of small business owners and advisors.
This meetup isn't a good fit for Direct Sales or MLM businesses. It's great for people who interested in building strong lifetime business relationships and learning about new solutions and technology.
We gather monthly to learn and laugh together, share stories, news, announcements, recommendations, tips and tricks, as well as develop opportunities by and for our practices through collaboration. Our presentations are timely and educational, not sales pitches. Topics often include technical training on QuickBooks, training on products that integrate with QuickBooks, and practice growth and development topics.
We are enthusiastic about sharing knowledge and supporting one another in meeting our business goals. We discuss challenges, exchange leads, and research new solutions together. We arrive early and/or stay late to network, collaborate and share referrals among peers in a supportive (not competitive) environment. Rising tides raise all ships.
Founded in 2011, the Portland Woodard Group is comprised of members with a diversity of skills, services, backgrounds and expertise as bookkeepers, Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisors, accountants, consultants, enrolled agents, CPAs, small business advisors and members of the Intuit Trainer Writer Network. Our group's strength is a direct result of the strength and diversity of our members. We are honored to have been recognized as the Fastest Growing Chapter in 2014. We are extremely honored to receive the Superstars award in 2015 and 2017!
Most of our members own their own bookkeeping or consulting practices and ALL members are passionate champions for their small business customers. Most of our members are from the Portland/Vancouver metro areas, though our members are located all throughout Oregon and SW Washington.
RSVP for our next lunch-and-learn meeting or quarterly social networking event! We look forward to meeting you!
