MONDAY
KETCHIKAN, ALASKA

Ketchikan is known as Alaska's "First City" because it's the first major community travelers come to as they journey north. Located on an island, Ketchikan began life as an Indian fishing camp. The name Ketchikan comes from a Tlingit phrase that means "eagle with spread-out wings," a reference to a waterfall near town.

TUESDAY
JUNEAU, ALASKA

Some 30,000 people live in Juneau. Its total area makes it one of the biggest towns, in size, in the world. Today Juneau is famous not only for gold and government but also for its breathtakingly beautiful glaciers and stunning views of both water and mountains.

May 17
WEDNESDAY
SKAGWAY, ALASKA

Skagway was the gateway to the gold fields for the thousands who flocked to Alaska and the Yukon with the hope of striking it rich. Skagway may have boasted the shortest route to the Klondike, but it wasn't the easiest.

May 18
THURSDAY
GLACIER BAY (SCENIC CRUISING)

Glacier Bay is the highlight of our 7-day Voyage of the Glaciers cruise. Just west of Juneau, this breathtaking national park and preserve boasts some of the world's most spectacular tidewater glaciers, such as Margerie Glacier, which often drops colossal chunks of ice into the sea. Not surprisingly, Glacier Bay National Park and its epic ice giants are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site comprising Alaska's magnificent park system.

May 19
FRIDAY
COLLEGE FJORD (SCENIC CRUISING)

Discovered in the northwest corner of Prince William Sound during an 1899 research expedition, spectacular College Fjord and its glaciers were named after prestigious east coast schools by the college professors who first laid eyes upon their majesty. Stretching for miles, these massive rivers of ice tumble down from mountains and through valleys, dipping into the pristine waters of the fjord. There you'll have a chance to watch the awe-inspiring process of glaciers calving, or dropping enormous pillars of ice into the sea, as they crack and land with a thunderous splash – a once-in-a-lifetime experience not to be missed!

May 20
SATURDAY
ANCHORAGE (WHITTIER), ALASKA

Whittier, approximately 65 miles southeast of Anchorage, lies nestled at the base of the Chugach Mountains bordering Passage Canal. Established as a World War II port for cargo and troops of the Alaska Command, Whittier remained activated until 1960. Today, Whittier's economy and its 290 residents rely largely on the fishing industry, the port and, increasingly, on tourism.

Tim McKey – CLE Speaker

Tim McKey

CLE Speaker

Tim began his career at Deloitte in 1983, founding the Vista Consulting Team in 2009. He has decades of experience working with local, regional, and national CPA firms, and has advised hundreds of law firms around the country.
 
As a CPA, and with several consultants who are also lawyers, Tim built a team that focuses on everything from management philosophy and strategic planning to implementation through programmatic systems. They consistently teach law firms how to track and monitor all aspects of law firm effectiveness and efficiency, usually creating custom dashboards to analyze “key performance indicators.”
 
Since all efficiencies and quality affect a firm’s bottom line, they focus on everything. From a technical standpoint, they review firm entity structure, accounting systems, and financial reporting. They test and improve client intake. They implement new software programs. They address human resources issues. And that’s just the beginning…
 
When working with Tim, clients often refer to “light bulb” moments…perhaps best referred to as BFOs (a Blinding Flash of the Obvious). He likes to say that business is “just not that complicated.” Tim’s ability to mentor successful business leaders, gently push them to new levels of thinking, while providing creative perspectives, contributes to Vista clients’ success, as well as Vista’s.
 
Tim’s strategic vision for Vista has made a great contribution toward developing a team of consultants who take a comprehensive approach to working with their clients. Identifying and solving operational issues is not the only goal…enhanced profitability and having fun doing it is real success.
 
Personally, Tim has two daughters, Sarah and Caroline, three granddaughters, Mary Grayson (MG), Ryleigh and Kate, one grandson, Timothy, and one wife, Jodi. A self-proclaimed business nerd, Tim enjoys reading, pondering and discussing future business trends, models, and disruptive change, tennis, exercise, and the pursuit of the “abundant life.”
