The Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics, along with the Health Care Compliance Association, is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education (CPE) on the National Registry of CPE sponsors. Recommended experience level for this course is intermediate to advanced. No prerequisites or advance requirements exist for the activity. This is a live-group activity. A maximum of 20 credits based on a 50-minute hour will be granted. State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
