This session providers learners with an essential overview of our regulatory ethics environment including:

  • A discussion of the central tenets of accounting ethics including a review of recent trends,
  • An overview of rule-making bodies that practitioners must abide by,
  • Changes to the current CPA licensure model, and
  • Ethical standards pronounced by the AICPA and the Department of the Treasury
