The coming of March means spring is (hopefully) around the corner, St Patty's Day and March Madness....if you're a basketball fan!  It also means it's time for our next Monthly Meeting.....

Please join us on Wednesday, March 13th when we welcome James Walsh, Financial Advisor from Advance Capital Management who will talk to us about Deconstructing the new tax law and it's impact on Payroll.  James has worked in the financial and retirement planning industry for around 20 years and will discuss with us the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  A few main points to be discussed include:


 - Overview of the new tax law

 - How standard deductions & Exemptions have changed and their affects on you

 - Review on the changes to itemized deductions

 - Adjustments to Faimly tax credits

For more information on James, please visit his page on the ACA website:


Also, we will be supporting our Make a Difference initiative and decorating lunch bags to donate to the Kids Food Basket of Grand Rapids!  If you have any crayons, markers, colored pencils around your house that have been long forgotten about, we encourage you to bring them to donate to help in our decorating.  The lunch bags will be provided and we will use a small amount of our meeting time for this activity (participation is optional!)

Since St Patrick's Day is just around the corner we'd love to see you decked out in your green attire and any other St Patrick's bling you want to wear:)  There just might be a goodie or two for those who really show their spirit!!


Look forward to seeing you in March!
