Introducing AGN:ADVANCE

Foundational Skills for Staff

We are very pleased to announce our new AGN: ADVANCE Professional Development Program - focused on combining technical, professional, business development and leadership skills throughout the careers of our members. In conjunction with the team at our Ohio member firm Clark Schaefer Hackett, we have created a cohesive offering that starts at entry level and builds upon the same themes throughout senior partner, addressing and enhancing appropriate topics for each stage. While we will still offer technical training at the staff level (now called "Foundational Skills"), for the first time the professional and leadership content will be applicable to everyone in your firm, regardless of their specialty area.  
We are currently working on a website that will provide specific details and offer online registration. In the meantime, here is a sneak peek of what you can expect from this one-of-a-kind educational program...
