ArcherPoint Sessions at NAVUG Forum 2013

NAVUG Forum 2013 will be held in Tampa, Florida, October 22-24. NAVUG Forum is always an excellent opportunity for users to network and learn about Dynamics NAV, regardless of skill level or job responsibility. Several of my colleagues at ArcherPoint will be leading sessions at NAVUG Forum this year, and I will personally be participating in five regular sessions as well as a pre-conference training session on Monday, October 21.

In particular, I want to tell my regular blog readers that I will be conducting a 2-hour, deep-dive session on Manufacturing Accounting for non-accounting professionals (Wednesday, October 23, at 3:45pm).

This session will be directed to Manufacturing and Material Management Professionals who may have had a course or two in accounting, but never got to the advanced courses in cost accounting. This two-hour session will start with the fundamentals of accounting, then progress to manufacturing accounting. At the end of the session, attendees should have a good understanding of “where do these numbers come from?”

If you haven’t registered for NAVUG Forum, time is running out. Go to navugforum.com for more details. And ask your ArcherPoint representative if you qualify for discounts to the event.

While all the sessions at NAVUG Forum will be well worth your time, below are the sessions in which ArcherPoint employees will be participating. See the complete schedule of sessions at:navugforum.com/education.

I hope to see you at NAVUG Forum 2013. And be sure to stop by and see us at booth #533 while you’re there.
