Description:

Health care is a profession under constant change, especially under a new administration.  New rules and regulations are introduced with regularity.  What can you do to keep pace with this ever-evolving industry?  Want to learn the best strategies for guiding your organization and clients?  The 2017 FICPA Health Care Conference is for you! 

This specialized, 17-hour conference covers implementation of the new standard for not-for-profits, post election concerns, revenue recognition and much more. There is a dedicated A & A track, and a specialized "new to health care/young CPA" track designed to get you up to speed on the things you need to know.

While attending, please visit with our sponsors at the vendor exposition where you'll find the latest products and services to make your job easier.

Ethics: Protecting the Integrity of Florida CPAs

We are offering four credit hours of ethics the day prior to the Health Care Industry Conference. 

CPAs face many complex and challenging ethical issues. This course addresses the ethical and professional obligations CPAs have to their clients, employers, colleagues, regulators, and to the public.  We will discuss recent trends in business and professional ethics along with the specific rules and requirements applicable to CPAs outlined in Florida Statutes, the Rules of the Florida Board of Accountancy, and the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct. The course fulfills the biennial ethics requirement for Florida CPAs and is designed for professionals in public practice and those working in industry or government.
