Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the MSCPA has made the difficult decision to make our scheduled live seminars in 2020 virtual-only events. The topics, dates, times and CPE credits will remain the same, and you will learn from the same top-level speakers that you expected to see at our live programs.

The AICPA's Professional Ethics Executive Committee (PEEC) clarified, revised, and codified the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct in 2014. There have been many changes since then. In this program, we will use the Code as our basis for discussing regulatory ethics. The program will address ethics rules applicable to CPAs in public practice, those in business, and others. Recent changes, interpretations, and non-authoritative guidance issued by PEEC will be discussed.



This seminar qualifies for the Workforce Training Express Fund program. The course code for this program is 1124227. Click here for more details:
