From the Chair
Catherine Ahrend,

CPAs working in state & local governments face a unique and rapidly-changing set of challenges.  The playing field is in constant motion.  The FICPA's State & Local Government Accounting Conference brings together experts in the field, to provide attendees (in-person and via simulcast) the information they need to navigate the ethical and practical demands of public services.  From GASB, Legislative and Auditor General updates to IT and Accounting Cloud , Data Analytics, Internal Control and Accounting Reporting & Auditing for Grants, this once-a-year conference is a must for CPAs in government.

We know budgets are tight.  We hope you will take advantage of the Early Bird discounted rates and the 15% discount for 5 registrants or more from the same organization.  FGFOA, FAC and FACC members can also come at member rates.  We want to see you in Orlando in August!

Network.  Collaborate.  Investigate. Learn.  Enjoy.
