Conference Overview

The inaugural AALDC was held in 2000 in Aspen, Colorado. In 2001 it was moved to Whistler, British Columbia, where it was held for the next six years before returning to Colorado, at Steamboat Ski Resort in 2007 and then back to Aspen in 2008 where it has been held since. Formally the Australian Accountants & Lawyers Conference, the program was expanded in 2013 to accommodate company directors to reflect the delegate mix of the conference.

Feedback from non-accountants and non-lawyers indicated the professional program is also relevant to the everyday operations of a business. This is particularly so given the advice from accountants and lawyers is an integral part of any business and that prudent directors will often seek the counsel of their professional advisors when considering many business decisions. We hope to attract more directors for the mutual benefit of all delegates and to create additional networking opportunities to those already available at the conference. We are very pleased to be returning to Aspen in 2024, as we did for 2023.

Clearly, the professional and director who keeps up to date with recent developments is in a better position to best conduct his or her practice or business. How we identify problems before they overtake our clients or businesses and what steps can be taken to maintain systems at efficient and effective levels? In its 24th year, the AALDC will address contemporary issues and create meaningful discussion about issues faced by the professions and in business.

The program is designed to provide continuing professional education points for participation. (however participants should make independent enquiry of their professinal association)*.
