What is an CPAFMA MAPCast?
An CPAFMA MAPCast is a live, interactive 60-minute conference presented over the telephone and over the Internet. You can attend from any location that has telephone and Internet access. You pay just one registration fee for as many participants as you wish at each call/log-in location.

Note that high-speed Internet access is not mandatory – the system works with dial-up but you must have separate connections for the audio and video portions. You may use cell phones for the audio if you have only one connection.

Who presents at an CPAFMA MAPCast?

Your MAPCast will have one or more speakers who are recognized experts on the topic. Conferences typically include a Q&A session; you can ask questions by phone or instant messaging options.

Course Description
Ethical lapses across the cultural landscape and the uncertainties of a post-9/11 world confirm that integrity is a timeless yet increasingly timely virtue. In a challenging but encouraging way, this topic is creatively analyzed by exploring such questions as: What are the crucial aspects of integrity and how can it be memorably defined? Why is it of vital importance to today’s workplace and an individual’s ultimate impact? How can it be maintained when those around us choose to operate differently? A presentation on integrity might be expected to be obvious, boring, or preachy, but this one is none of these. As a CEO once wrote afterwards, “Many of our members thought it an unusual topic before you spoke. They all believed it to be a vital one when you finished.”
