A Continuing Professional Education (CPE) seminar for certified
public accountants (CPAs) will be held on October 20, 2014, at the Rivers Casino in
Pittsburgh. The event will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will include
free parking. This seminar is sponsored by the First National Bank.
Preregistration is required for the seminar and must be
submitted by Monday, October 13, and be accompanied with the $129 fee. The registration form can
be downloaded and should be completed and mailed
in along with the fee. This eight-hour course will award attendees 8 CPE credit
hours, and, upon completion of the seminar, participants will receive a certificate
listing the type and number of credits earned.
The CPE seminars are opportunities for CPAs to earn credits
to maintain certification, as they are required to earn a number and types of
credits for each recertification period.
“As IUP expands
its CPE program to downtown Pittsburgh, hopefully IUP accounting grads in the
Pittsburgh area will take advantage of this CPE seminar, for which a
portion of the net proceeds support IUP accounting scholarships,” said Duane
Ponko, former IUP accounting professor and owner of DW Ponko, CPA CFE.
The presenters at the seminar will cover a range of topics
that are timely and purposeful to the public accounting profession such as
fraud, tax law, estate planning, auditor and internal controls, mutual funds,
ethics, and more.
