Conferences

AICPA Governmental Accounting and Auditing Update Conference (GAAC)

COMPLIANCE | ACCURACY | QUALITY

UPDATES SPECIFIC TO YOUR GOVERNMENT AREA

Our in-depth sessions at this year’s AICPA Governmental Accounting and Auditing Update will target questions and issues specific to your area of expertise, whether at the federal, state or local level.

Attend in Washington or via webcast for updates direct from key government officials and policymakers.

Uniform Guidance is still top of mind for many of us, but there’s a new dimension to the standards. As we shift into year two of Uniform Guidance, questions of application — in addition to implementation — are taking priority.

This August, GAAC will address both elements through in-depth technical guidance and strategy updates. Extensive on-site networking opportunities and engagement forums for online attendees, also will connect you with peers, for a consensus-building approach to solving challenges.

Who Should Attend

CPAs working in federal, state and local government; public practitioners with government clients; and regulators who need to be aware of emerging developments.
