Join CPAs from across the country for a fully virtual edition of The ONE Conference and Expo this fall, with the theme of succeeding in a new reality. You’ll learn how to create value and build back better, with a focus on key issues today – including leadership, the shift to purpose-driven work, strong digital skills and reimagining the accounting profession.

An exciting lineup of sessions, keynotes, hot topic panels and live Q&As will span four days, with multiple package options available starting at $149. Depending on what package you select, you can earn anywhere from six to 24 CPD hours.

To further customize your training experience, you’ll be able to pick and choose what to watch in real time or catch later. All four days of conference content will be recorded during the live event and available afterwards on demand for up to 90 days.

Also new this year is a dynamic online expo. This addition integrates the best elements of the former National Technology Forum into The ONE. Enjoy fresh, cutting-edge opportunities to learn directly from top vendors through tech demos and interactive lessons.
