2020 2021 Bookkeeping Buds Celebration Retreat

The plan was to celebrate in 2020 with our 5th annual retreat but with all that happened in the last year we have so much more to CELEBRATE!  This is a 2 Day LIVE event, including HUGS!!!

This boutique retreat is designed for bookkeepers and accountants who are running their own firm and are looking for education, networking and fun in an intimate setting.

You will quickly learn this retreat is like no other accounting conference you have attended previously.  You will leave motivated and with a complete support system behind you to finish out the year.

  • During this 2 day LIVE event, DAY 1, ME DAY, you will spend time on yourself to learn techniques to help bring peace back to your day-to-day life.  Buds member Celeste Wiatrak will be presenting tips on how to strengthen your focus through simple exercises.  Learn the power of aromatherapy.  There will also be time for reflection and planning. 
  • Keep the conversations going at our evening reception on Monday and have a few laughs.
  • DAY 2 is Business day featuring industry SUPERSTARS Debbie Kilsheimer (Pricing) and Carla Caldwell (Marketing).  We will also have group panels.  Bring your questions and get your answers.
  • Through out the event you will have dedicated time to network with other attendees, share your struggles of running a business and offer encouragement as you work through solutions to get through the rough points together.
  • Get to meet vendors on site and ask your specific questions about their products to help your clients.
  • Food is included during the day for both days to keep you energized.
  • And no event is complete without an exciting raffle to raise money for the American Cancer Society including some AMAZING prizes.
  • Plus many fun surprises.

The event will be held on October 18th (12PM-8PM) and 19th (9PM-5PM) at NIU in Naperville IL (Chicago Suburb).  We are working on a hotel block right across the street.  There will be an optional Buds Meeting/Meet and Greet in the morning at 10AM. The  official retreat begins Monday with a 12:00 Lunch and Me Day at 1:00PM.

If you are flying in, you can fly into Midway or O'Hare.  They are about the same distance to the hotel.  You can take an Uber from the airport to the hotel.  You will not need to rent a car while you are there (unless you want to do additional site seeing).

Capacity is limited to 50 attendees so you can build real relationships with other bookkeepers.  Don't wait if you want to be in the room where it happens.
