Committee CPE Technical Session Guidelines

  • Programs run from 1–3 CPE credit hours in length. One CPE credit hour equals 50 contact minutes.
  • NYSSCPA members may register for 1 hour Committee CPE programs at no cost. Sessions longer than 1 hour do have a registration fee associated with them.
  • Only the FAE may arrange and sponsor committee CPE credits. No outside vendors or programs will be considered for committee CPE. 
  • Committee chairs or assigned committee members need to submit a CPE Request Form and supporting documents 3 weeks prior to the program date. (You may also download the form here and submit via email or fax).
  • The FAE will list the session in its online course catalog and send a CPE notification to committee members and requested guests at least 2 weeks in advance to promote the program.
  • Presentation materials must be emailed to FAE staff at least 1 week in advance of program so that they can be made available for registrants to download at least 2 days in advance of the program. The session will not provide printed materials.
  • All attendees— including committee members, committee chairs and paid guests— must register in advance to receive CPE credit.
  • Space may be limited. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • The committee chair or staff liaison will receive the CPE attendance sheet on the day of the program. Attendees must sign in to confirm their attendance and receive CPE credit.
  • Committee leaders will take roll call at the beginning and at the end of the CPE session to record registered attendees.
  • Attendees will access program evaluations and CPE certificates through the myCPE website after the session.
  • Registrants should be encouraged to complete program evaluations.
