Editor's Note
Gail Perry, Managing Editor It's nearly the end of the year, and many accounting professionals are looking at their schedules and thinking about the types of training they need to meet CPE requirements, how they can better themselves for the year ahead, and perhaps how they can grab a quick vacation at the same time. We've assembled some information about those important year-end considerations (including the getting a tan part!) in hopes that we can help you organize your thoughts before you close the book on 2009.

Best wishes,
Gail Perry, CPA

Need more CPE hours? Consider transient training
If you're feeling the grind of accumulating 40 hours of CPE by the end of the year, you don't necessarily have to sit through a Yellow Book Auditing class because that's what's near your office. It's not too late to incorporate learning with some fun in the sun by 12/31.
Great leadership doesn't come from books (or Google)
You don’t need to read books on leadership to be a good leader – I know this as I’ve worked with some exceptional leaders in developing countries who didn’t read at all. If you look at history, the majority of great leaders have not done MBAs or studied psychology in college.
