The FICPA’s 2011 State and Local Government Accounting Conference was held on August 18-19, at the Renaissance Orlando Airport - Hotel.

This year’s highlights included:

2011 Yellow Book: What You Need to Know - Marsha B. Buchanan, CPA, CGFM
Assistant Director, Financial Management and Assurance, U.S. Government Accountability Office, Washington, DC

Accounting and Auditing Implementation Challenges - Lynda M. Dennis, CGFM, CPA, PhD, Accounting Instructor

Single Audit Update - Mary M. Foelster, CPA, Director, Governmental Auditing & Accounting, AICPA , Washington, DC

Auditing Standards Update - Michael Glynn, CPA, Senior Technical Manager, Audit and Attest Standards, AICPA,  New York

Conference attendees enjoyed the opportunity to network with their fellow CPAs on Thursday night at a reception hosted by the FICPA State and Local Government Section.
