Walk-in Registrations

You are welcome to attend any of our sessions. Full payment for ASCPA events is due at the time of registration.

Canceled Seminars by Society

ASCPA holds the right to cancel a seminar. When the Society cancels a seminar, you will receive a full refund. In the event the seminar is canceled, ASCPA is not responsible for penalties incurred by registrants who must cancel travel arrangements.

Event Confirmations

A confirmation is emailed indicating the course name, date, times and location. It also serves as a convenient CPE record. If you have not received confirmation of registration within two business days of sending your registration form or registering online, please contact the Society CPE department at ascpacpe@ascpa.com or call (602) 324-6847.

Course Materials

Participants receive course materials either as a hard copy for in-person sessions or a PDF document for webcasts. We can provide extra copies of course materials for a $25 fee. If you would like additional copies, please contact the CPE department at ascpacpe@ascpa.com one week prior to the course. Webcast materials will be emailed two days prior to the event. Once webcast materials are distributed to participants, refunds are not issued.

No Shows

If you do not attend the event, refunds are not issued; however, you will receive the course materials.

Canceled Seminars by Registrant

Cancellations will be assessed a $25 cancellation fee when canceled less than two weeks prior to the seminar. Submit via phone at (602) 252-4144, by email to ascpacpe@ascpa.com. When a cancellation is submitted, event fees will be refunded in the original payment method or placed on account by request. A full refund is offered if the cancellation is submitted at least two weeks prior to the course. Webcast and webinar materials will be provided as a download two days prior to the session. No refund is issued once webcast materials are distributed to participants.
