CPAs in government have the honor and responsibility of serving the public's best interest.  They also know that it's no simple task--learning best practices from colleagues and taking a look at the big picture are all part of due diligence.

Challenges are everywhere.  The State & Local Government Accounting Conference brings together cutting edge topics and great speakers to provide you with the information you need to stay ahead of the curve.  The conference also offers a great opportunity to network with other CPAs in the field and to socialize at our welcoming reception.

From the full range of GASB pronouncements to the latest in cyber security, fraud and emerging issues--this is the conference for you!  This year, there is also a preconference seminar on government ethics (separate registration required).

Please take a moment to review the agenda.  I'm sure you'll find it a program you won't want to miss.  We want you to share this opportunity with your colleagues.  The FICPA offers registration discounts for groups of five or more.  Those who have never attended the conference will receive a $100 discount.  Members of FGFOA, FAC and FACC can register at member rates.  If you have any questions, please contact the FICPA's Member Service Center at (800) 342-3197. See you in Orlando August 24-25, 2017!
