Welcome to the Academy for Continuing Professional Education

For the last 30 years, ACPE has strived to assemble the best programs for accountants seeking to satisfy their continuing education requirements, while offering practical, informative and entertaining speakers and topics.

A great benefit to ACPE seminars has been the personal touch: the ability to interact directly with the speakers and to network with peers.

This year, due to coronavirus, the seminars will be virtual. We are monitoring the situation closely to determine when in-person courses can continue. Going virtual has not in any way impacted the quality of our speakers.
