I will be attending NASBA's National CPE Expo in San Antonio, TX from September 21 – 23. After passing the CPA Exam in 2008, I have until June 2010 to fulfill my prorated accounting continuing education requirements to keep my CPA license current. The three-day event will net me 22 hours of CPE. There are some very interesting courses offered at the Expo, but in particular I'm looking forward to the 8 hour session that breaks down the comparison between IFRS and GAAP. I assume that most of another71.com readers are CPA candidates and don't yet have to worry about CPE, but if anyone is attending the Expo, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can meet for a cold beverage.
