Quarterly CPE Compliance Advisory Group Meeting 

By April 5, 2022 News

The recent virtual Compliance Advisory Group (CAG) meeting hosted in March was a great success! We are grateful to the over 20 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) compliance professionals from accounting firms across the country who actively participated. The interactive format of the meeting allows all participants to ask questions, share knowledge, and make recommendations for edits or enhancements to the over 200 jurisdictions currently monitored in the LCvista Compliance Solutions system. 

Many thanks go to Tracy Parrish from DHG, who submitted a request for clarification to the New York State Board of Accountancy regarding the CPE proration rule on behalf of Compliance leaders at several firms. She received the written clarification necessary for LCvista to update the requirements below in the jurisdiction rules.

  • New York State Board of Accountancy:  CPE proration for licenses issued prior to January 1, 2020, has been verified and will be updated in the jurisdiction rules
