Educational Programs

CPAFMA hosts not only a National Practice Management Conference each June (every other year in partnership with AICPA ENGAGE), but several local and regional events. The two-and-a-half day National Practice Management Conference covers a wide range of management, human resources, marketing, leadership and technology issues, while our MAPCasts focus on a specific topic of interest. CPAFMA is a registered sponsor on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors and provides recertification credit hours toward PHR and SHR recertification through the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI). Upon course completion, participants attending CPAFMA's educational offerings, desiring CPE credit or recertification credits will receive completion certificates.
