Annual Firm Meeting Recap

July 3rd, 2012 by Sara Robertson

Last Tuesday, we held our annual firm meeting at the Arena Grand Theatre. GBQ hosts quarterly firm meetings throughout the year, but the annual meeting is always our big one (and my favorite!). We announce promotions, give out recognition and service awards, and have a little fun (yes, contrary to popular belief, accountants DO know how to have fun).

We try to spice things up each year to make the “presentation” exciting and it has turned into quite a production. We have done everything from live skits and a music video to GBQ Idol. This year was no different, the meeting was complete with a stage, lighting, video, music and of course a movie screen. Here’s a taste:

  • Recognition Awards: Associates are nominated and ultimately voted on and recognized by their fellow co-workers. Click here to read more about these awards and view a full list of the associates recognized this year.
  • Promotions: This is always a popular one (go figure!). This year promotions included several new Managers and Senior Managers. Click here for a full list.
  • Service Awards: We also recognize associates for their years of service. This year we celebrated associates at the 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 year marks.
