NYSSCPA’s Education Foundation Announces New CPE Firm Discount Program

NEW YORK – (December 10, 2012) -The New York State Society of CPAs’ Foundation for Accounting Education (FAE)  today launched a new CPE discount program that gives more continuing education options for small- to medium-size CPA firms.
The new FAE Value Pass (FAE VP) allows firms to choose between a 40-credit or 80-credit CPE discount pass, giving CPA firms and businesses more CPE options while saving up to 22 percent off of what they would have paid for the same amount of credits without the pass. More savings can be realized if firms take advantage of the early bird special, which will run through Dec. 31, 2012.
“The new FAE VP offers more savings choices and is an easy and convenient way for CPAs to fulfill their CPE requirements,” FAE President John J. Kearney said. “We offer a diverse array of events featuring top-quality continuing professional education seminars, conferences, technical sessions, and special events. Programs are constantly added, amended, and updated to reflect the latest developments in the accounting world and to meet the ever-changing needs of our NYSSCPA members and associates.”
The 40-credit pass is also the perfect option for firms who want to save on CPE but will only send a limited number of staff to specific events, he added. With a FAE Value Pass, firms will have more than 300 popular FAE courses to choose from, including full- and half-day conferences, seminars and one- and two-hour webcasts.
In addition to the firm discount program, FAE is also rolling out a new CPE discount program for NYSSCPA members that can be purchased on an individual basis and that provides up to 25 percent savings off the regular price for the same amount of CPE credits.
New York law requires its licensed CPAs and public accountants to earn either 24 credits of CPE in one concentrated subject area, or 40 hours of CPE in any accepted subject area on an annual basis. Keeping this in mind, the FAE developed a discount program that allows individuals to choose between a 24-credit pass or a 40-credit pass, giving CPAs exactly what they need to stay current and meet their annual requirements – no more, no less, and at a significantly reduced price..

Established in 1972, the NYSSCPA’s Foundation for Accounting Education is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, that helps CPAs stay current with the latest accounting, auditing, taxation and other industry trends, ever-evolving rules and regulations. The events are held throughout New York State and via webcast.
