Woodard Groups allow accounting professionals and other small business advisors to interact throughout the year at a local level, leading to the development of high impact, long-term professional relationships. In addition to networking opportunities, the local meetings offer in-depth training and the opportunity to cross refer services. The Groups foster deep, long-term peer relationships between small business advisors and small business owners. By interacting through the year – and at a local level – members build professional relationships locally that are unique and highly dynamic.
