Continuing Professional Education

Good morning,

Some days I do something other than make bread, travel, knit, stack wood....  ;)

On this particular day, I attended an Ohio Society of CPAs (OSCPA) Continuing Professional Education meeting with my daughter and another friend of many years (also CPAs, of course.) 

This was a Professional Issues Update which is offered twice a year and is always packed with useful information.  Since giving my practice to my daughter about twelve years ago, I'm not actively practicing, but do keep my license current.  I have already met my continuing education requirements and have renewed my license for another three years so don't need the continuing education credits, but I always like to attend this meeting to stay current and updated on issues important to the profession. After more than 30 years in the profession and teaching accounting I have strong feelings about what is important to my many former clients and all small businesses.

I also like seeing old friends and this is the place to find them.  ;)
 The first picture I took at the top was taken with my handy dandy baby camera that fits so well in my purse:  Canon PowerShot SX210 IS.  It was taken when we got there a little early.  Just about 20 minutes later, the room had filled and I took a picture with my Blackberry.  The quality of the images is very different.  I'm glad I had the PowerShot with me.

So, that was where I spent a really exciting day with other accountants.   *chuckles*    Tomorrow I will be stacking wood again.  :)

When I taught, I took some at the University of Cincinnati and then somewhere in Columbus, Ohio but not Ohio State. And then they used to come to a larger school instead of people from all over traveling somewhere every day they came to one place convenient. I don't remember much more than that as the last one I attended was the year I quit teaching. No regrets.

Hi everyone,

Thanks, Angie, for your kind words about the header. That image was taken off the coast of Labadee, Haiti.

It seems "Continuing Education" rang a bell with several of you. Some of the sessions are downright interesting; some of the sessions are downright boring! ;)

Yes, Granny and others overseas, a Certified Public Accountant here is similar to a Chartered Accountant in other parts of the world.

Thank you, everyone, for stopping by.

Very best,
