Are you a certified public accountant (CPA) who is looking to earn continuing professional educational (CPE) hours? You might want to mark your calendar for November. The Rutgers School of Business-Camden will be hosting the Inaugural Annual Accounting Conference on November 12th and 13th at the Camden County Boathouse in Pennsauken, NJ. The event will be an opportunity for CPAs to network, learn about the latest industry updates and strategies from accounting experts, and earn up to 12 CPE hours to meet their relicensing requirements.
As new tax code and regulations are created each year, CPAs must stay educated on current practices to ensure they provide quality professional services. In order to achieve professional competence wherever they practice, each state accounting board and accounting membership group has specific CPE requirements. CPAs that don’t adhere to these requirements are subject to a number of penalties, ranging from fines to license suspension. New Jersey and Pennsylvania both require CPAs to fulfill 20 CPE hours per year.
As seating is limited, interested CPAs in New Jersey and Pennsylvania are encouraged to register early to reserve their seats. The two-day education event will feature presentations from the top accounting experts in the industry, including speakers from Pricewaterhouse Coopers, the Philadelphia Mergers and Acquisitions group, SmartPros LTD., and Strategic Associates LLC.
The event will be hosted by the prestigious Rutgers School of Business-Camden’s “Daniel J. Ragone (CPA) Center for Accounting Excellence,” which is helping accounting professionals across the region gain and maintain professional credibility and standards throughout their careers.
The Camden Country Boathouse is located in Cooper River Park and is easily accessible from 676, the New Jersey Turnpike, 295 and many other local interstates and highways. Parking is easy and free for the event. Interested parties looking to enhance their understanding of the industry and earn up to 12 CPE hours are encouraged to register today by calling (856) 225-6723.
