International Partners in France Next September 13-17 The largest group of Touche, Ross international partners ever assembled will meet in Cannes, France next fall. Partners from every continent will spend five days analyzing and discussing problems inherent in a world-wide public accounting practice. From this meeting will emerge policy decisions for the continued progress and guidance of the international group. As a prelude to the Cannes meeting, Touche, Ross delegates and their wives, who will be in Paris on September 6th for the opening of the Ninth International Congress of Accountants, will be invited to enjoy a scenic cruise along the Seine. Cocktails and lunch will be served on the river Seine aboard one of the famous Bateaux Mouches. (photo A) If its beautiful setting on the Cote d'Azure is an indicator, the Cannes meeting, opening September 13, one day after the Paris conference closes, will be especially rewarding. The Carleton, queen of hotels, with only its own beach and terrace separating it from the Mediterranean, is "home" for the meeting. The movie "To Catch a Thief" was filmed there and in nearby Monaco, and the hotel has been graced by everyone from Winston Churchill to most of the reigning movie queens. Some of the flavor of this spectacular international resort is caught in the photographs on these pages, but its charm must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. In this setting, it may be difficult for the international partners to concentrate, but the business and technical sessions planned by the International Coordinating Office promise to be as absorbing as the natural sights. Managing Partner Robert Beyer's keynote address will set the tone and direction of the meeting. At a meeting chaired by International Coordinating Partner John A. Wilson, a report from the International Coordinating Office will be given and specific proposals will be offered for consideration of the partners present. The International Management Services Committee has planned a presentation that will include the newest management service capabilities of Touche, Ross. Seminars on developments in international taxation, and auditing are also on the agenda. The auditing session will feature a talk by Robert M. Trueblood on the special requirements of audits of international clients, and will include a general discussion on the continuing expansion of the auditor's role, and his growing responsibilities to clients and others. The wives have not been forgotten. Among the special events planned for them are a trip to the medieval village of Saint Paul de Vence (photo B) visits to several famous art museums, and a look at the latest Paris fashions at a combined luncheon and fashion show. Also, of course, they will be able to enjoy the sun and water while their husbands are meeting. The grand finale of the conference will be a formal banquet on the last evening. In addition to superb French food, dancing, and other entertainment, guests will enjoy Howard J. Ross, Chairman of the International Partnership, in the role of Toastmaster. 48
