Master Clark’s Blackbelt Test
Dedicated in Memory of Al Clark
As the founder of Garden Accounting Service in 1963, Al Clark was a pioneer in marketing for accounting services. Most of my talents, and those of my company teaches and uses, were developed under his tutelage. Each of us here at NCI, as well as thousands of professional accountants nationwide, owe a large portion of our success to his vision and tremendous work ethic. It is with love and honor that I dedicate NCI to his memory.
