Hosted by the Oklahoma Society of Certified Public Accountants, the two-day conference offers 16 hours of recommended continuing professional education on Thursday, May 2, and Friday, May 3, at the Magnuson Hotel Meridian Convention Center in Oklahoma City.

Thirteen speakers from across Oklahoma and the U.S. will lead sessions on professional ethics, the Clarity Project, Governmental Accounting Standards Board changes, Yellow Book updates and more.
