September 1998 Issue


CPAs in New Jersey in June 1998 joined about 250 people from the business and legal communities, construction and insurance industries, and the government sector in the second annual ADR state conference called "ADR: Make It Your Business."

The conference, co-sponsored by the New Jersey Society of CPAs, featured breakout sessions on different aspects of ADR. CPAs participated as speakers in a number of sessions: Sam Rosenfarb and Alan Winters, divorce mediation; Bernard Sobel, Joan P. D'Uva, and Brian T.
