The National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) is launching a web series that focuses on “what every integrator needs to know,” kicking off the monthly offering Jan. 15 with a focus on tax strategies and continuing every third Tuesday with other relevant topics to today’s business environment.
In addition to the January webinar with staff from McGladrey LLP and Deborah Gulick of Entrepreneurial Service Group, LLC, dubbed “Tax Strategies for 2013,” two other sessions are scheduled, with others to be added.
On Feb. 19, Edwin Zalewski of J.J. Keller & Associates will tackle “Ensuring Proper Payment for Hours Worked,” looking at lawsuits tied to wage and hour issues stemming from incorrect employee classification and attempts to avoid paying overtime.
NSCA Executive director Chuck Wilson, who answers members questions in his weekly video Question of the Week and blog posts, will join Atrion Networking senior VP Paul Cronin on March 19 for “Business Transformation,” which will look at why the traditional systems integrator’s model must be transformed to a service-driven organization for long-term growth.
Wilson will also join CI editor Tom LeBlanc on Jan. 9 at 2 p.m. ET for the third annual Business Outlook webinar.
Additional topics for NSCA’s webinars throughout 2013 include:
• 10 Outrageous Contract Requirements
• Attracting & Retaining Employees
• Measuring Business Intelligence
• Protecting Intellectual Property
• Developing Visions for Scope & Scalability
• Government Policies & Regulations
• Disruptive Technologies for 2014
