The Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants (FICPA) is pleased to announce its Florida CPA Summit. This year’s event will be held Monday-Wednesday, Nov. 8-10, at the Signature Grand in Davie, outside Fort Lauderdale. The conference will also stream select sessions online for those who wish to participate from home or the office.
An expansive three-day agenda will cover all the latest hot topics from the world of accounting, including state and federal tax, cryptocurrency, cannabis, cybersecurity, data analytics, diversity and inclusion and more.
“We’re very excited to once again offer this event in person,” said Diane Major, FICPA Manager of Learning. “The COVID-19 pandemic gave rise to many challenges for finance professionals and their clients. This cutting-edge conference addresses these issues and offers insight and solutions. There are also many networking opportunities to engage with both presenters and peers – all in a socially distanced environment.”
The Summit kicks off with four hours of “Ethics: Protecting the Integrity of Florida CPAs (4980)” on Nov. 8 and continues with four free hours of additional CPE at our TED-style Learning Labs later that afternoon. The main Summit schedule is slated for Nov. 9-10 and features keynote presentations from AICPA Chairman William “Bill” Pirolli, A-LIGN CEO and Founder Scott Price, FBI Special Agent Keith Givens, CPA, and author and speaker Ridgley Goldsborough.
“The Florida CPA Summit is the premier annual conference for accounting and finance professionals. It brings the collective community together to learn, network and benefit from thought leadership,” said Kathryn Horton, co-chair of the FICPA’s Florida CPA Summit Committee. “With a wide-ranging list of topics and influential speakers sourced from all over the nation, there’s a session for everyone at the Summit.”
Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit our sold-out Solution Center exhibit hall to learn even more from industry leaders. Summit participants will interact with more than 25 exhibitors and sponsors throughout the event and at our Vendor Reception after the day’s final session on Nov. 9.
“The Florida CPA Summit is a fantastic occasion for all of our peers to come together, learn, network, and share ideas,” said Summit sponsor and presenter Shawn McCabe, CPAlliance Director, CPS Investment Advisors. “We love being able to support events that advance our industry and create opportunities for all of us to grow.”
