This annual event brings together accounting educators from across the province to explore issues shaping the future of the CPA profession.

Last year was supposed to be our 11th annual conference, but since 2020 was cancelled, we’re picking up right where we left off – virtually, of course!

Join us and your fellow accounting instructors from across the province as we dive into relevant and important topics like:

• Teaching data analytics

• Accounting ethics in the classroom

• What employers want when filling CPA training positions

The conference is free to any full-time, part-time or sessional accounting faculty and instructor in all Alberta and Saskatchewan post-secondary institutions.

As always, there will be door prizes and other surprises for conference attendees.

Please feel free to forward this information to any of your colleagues who might be interested in attending, and direct any questions to:
