Educational Offerings

Education and Knowledge

CPA Firm Management Association’s educational opportunities and conferences have a lasting impact on our members, helping them to achieve the highest level of expertise within the profession of firm management and creating network opportunities, both professional and personal, that last a lifetime.

CPAFMA was the first organization to host a national conference for accounting firm managers. The conference continues to be the only one designed exclusively by and for professional those in firm practice management. Our national and local/regional events enable firm managers from across the country and even beyond our borders to network, exchange information and ideas, and make business and personal contacts that can have a lasting impact on their careers and the success of their firms. Our conferences have been widely acclaimed as a necessary component of every firm manager's professional education program. CPAFMA is a registered sponsor on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. Upon course completion, participants attending CPAFMA's conferences, desiring CPE credit, will earn credit hours.

CPAFMA offers between 25-36 MAPCasts each year, featuring topics you want to learn more about. From business development, training, practice management, marketing, operations, finance, IT and human resources, we have a MAPCast for you. PAFMs enjoy MAPCasts without charge and they are available to members and non-members at a nominal fee. PODCasts are immediately available for viewing and are free to members after a year.
