Annual Meeting & Awards Luncheon

At this year’s Annual Meeting and Awards Luncheon, we will honor our newest Life Member Debra Davenport, former Arizona Auditor General. We will also honor Katharine Drake, Ph.D. our 2019 Excellence in Teaching Award Recipient. We will hear from our keynote speaker, AICPA Past Chair Eric Hansen. 

During his time as AICPA chair, Hansen focused on three issues that pose significant opportunities for the accounting profession.

  • Prepare the profession to capitalize on improvements in technology.
  • Solidify the profession's position in the global marketplace.
  • Ensure that employers are investing in all members of the profession to evolve skills and competencies and cultivate future leaders as members of the Baby Boom generation retire.


Hansen has been with BKD CPAs & Advisors since 1985 and is currently the Chief Operating Officer.

Tables of 10 are available for purchase with two options, the regular table option for $750, and our premium table sponsorships for $1,000. This sponsorship level includes a $250 donation to the Arizona CPA scholarship fund. The fund assists accounting students on their paths to becoming CPAs. As a premium sponsor, your firm will also receive special recognition at the event.

Purchase your table by emailing Gretchen Pacheco at gpacheco@ascpa.com or calling (602) 324-4745.

We look forward to seeing you at the Arizona Biltmore Resort on May 8!

Webcast: Professional Ethics Update for CPAs in Business - Including Revised AICPA Code (12:30-4)

Always up to date, this course is designed to meet the Arizona biennial four-hour ethics CPE requirement for CPAs in business renewing their licenses. In addition to meeting Arizona State Board of Accountancy requirements, the course includes materials and examples designed to reinforce the CPA in business' practical understanding of professional ethics standards. Calendar year 2014 was a transition year for the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct.
