COVID-19 Statement

Update on 2020 NPMC

Safety and health are our highest priorities in the decisions we’ve made and continue to make about members, attendees, vendors, speakers and sponsors when it comes to the CPAFMA 2020 National Practice Management Conference. We take the Coronavirus very seriously. Out of concern for all involved, we’ve made the decision to cancel the 2020 NPMC in Sarasota this June.

The decision wasn’t easy and we are as disappointed about it as you. We will be hosting an event, November 9-11, 2020 in Sarasota with an online component designed for those managing accounting practices to bring you the quality learning you expect from CPAFMA. Many of the same programs and speakers originally scheduled for the NPMC will be there but we are re-designing the event to provide updated information needed in the environment faced by CPA firms today. Information will be available in the coming weeks as to the schedule and updates will be available as the program’s content is finalized.

2020 NPMC attendees who are already registered can find more information about fee credits, refunds and other policies in our FAQs located here.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate this ever changing and challenging new normal. We will continue to provide updates and hope you, your families and firms stay safe and healthy.
