One day after NCACPA requested greater flexibility surrounding group Internet-based program requirements given the COVID-19 pandemic, NASBA acknowledged the need for certain allowances during this time.
This is especially critical now, as understandably, many of NCACPA’s subject matter experts (SMEs) are unable to travel for upcoming scheduled CPE programs. The flexibility granted by NASBA will enable the NCACPA staff to work with SMEs and prerecord their presentations, and identify a system for getting program attendees’ questions answered within a 24- to 48-hour window, while still qualifying as a group Internet-based program.
NCACPA’s in-person programs scheduled through May 15 will be offered virtually—a timeframe in which several key conferences are traditionally offered. The flexibility granted by NASBA ensures that NCACPA can continue to deliver high-quality education while meeting all of NASBA’s regulatory standards.
NCACPA is hard at work reconfiguring the logistics for conferences scheduled in May. As plans are solidified, we will provide updates via email and on our website.
