Our team is very excited to be heading to Niagara Falls for the CPA Conference this year! We have been looking into all the amazing sights and activities to take in while we are there and thought we would share them in this guide with you so you too can make the most of your time in the Niagara area!

Start Your Day With a Breath of Fresh Air

Each day of the Conference we will be sponsoring the Early Risers' Club. Join us each morning to generate momentum for your day with a 20 minute walk or run in Niagara Falls. We will meet in the lobby of the Marriott hotel at 6:30 am to get some fresh air before you get ready for the day’s events.

Click the link to the right and RSVP for Early Risers' Club and enter to win a FitBit Blaze smartwatch. 

Wednesday, June 14 is Trade Show Day

Admission to the Trade Show is free for anyone to attend.

We’d love to say hello! Be sure you drop by our booth and enter to win your own personalized 'Superhero Selfie'! Our artist Kim Smith will turn the winner into their very own Payroll Superhero.
