Is continuing education credit available?
We have registered with the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy (TSBPA) as a CPE sponsor for Certified Public Accountants, and the program is recommended for up to 8 hours of CPE credit. If you arrive late or leave early, you should claim only the number of CPE credits for the actual time attended (based on a 50-minute period equal to one CPE credit). Our TSBPA sponsor number is 010158. Registration with TSBPA does not constitute an endorsement by the Board as to the quality of our CPE program.
Additionally, the program will include an optional 2-hour Ethics course. This course meets the annual requirement for Ethics training for the ACFE.
Are there any prerequisites for CPE credit?
There are no prerequisites for this program.
Where can I find information about course content and learning objectives?
This information is available on the Conference Speakers page.
How will CPE be reported?
In-person attendees will be checked in upon arrival. It is the attendees' responsibility to accurately report CPE based on actual time attending conference sessions.
In accordance with TSBPA rules, each virtual session will feature at least 3 polling questions in order to monitor attendee participation. Attendees must respond to at least 3 polling questions in order to receive credit for the session. Chapter members will be present in the session to attend to technical difficulties.
TSBPA rules for CPE sponsors require that all programs include a process for evaluating quality by participants. After the conference, you will receive a short survey asking you to evaluate the programs. The CPE certificate is generated upon completion of the survey and may be printed or saved as a PDF. You must take the survey to get your CPE certificate - we are not able to print CPE certificates for you. The survey will be sent to the email address used to register for the conference.
