More than 20 auditors from McConnell & Jones’ Employee Benefit Plan Audit and Assurance team will attend the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Employee Benefit Plan Conference. The annual event, which covers accounting, auditing and regulatory updates affecting employee benefit plans, will be held May 15 – 17 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

MJ’s team of employee benefit plan auditors, who dedicate 100 percent of their time to this unique discipline, will attend virtual and in-class presentations detailing cybersecurity and employee benefit plans, plan governance and fiduciary responsibilities and regulatory updates affecting defined contribution, pension, and health and welfare plans.
