NCURA is accredited by the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. This program is administered by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) to sponsor and award Continuing Professional Education credits (CPEs) to accounting professionals. Certified Public Accountants will need to complete and submit a CPE survey, that will be available the last day of the conference on this webpage for each session you attend in order to receive CPE credits. The survey must be submitted no later than April 8, 2024 to receive credits. A CPE Code will be made available during each concurrent session that qualifies for CPEs.  Be sure to make note of each of these session codes, as this code will need to be included in the survey per session you attend.  

In accordance with the standards of the National Registry of CPE Sponsors, 50 minutes equals 1 CPE. Depending on the sessions and workshops you choose to attend a maximum of 19.2 CPE credits can be issued for NCURA’s FRA Conference.
