Managing Ethical Dilemmas for Texas Finance Professionals

We are excited to offer ethics training after the spring institute. Allison M. McLeod, LL.M., and CPA will educate and inform finance professionals on what is the right thing to do according to the Texas Rules of Professional Conduct and how to put your values into action. As part of this course, we will also look at various schools of ethical thought and walk through real-world examples of individuals, companies, and municipalities faced with moral dilemmas.

The course is on Tuesday, April 16, from 1:00-5:00 p.m. at the Renaissance Austin Hotel and the registration fee is $150. This course satisfies the ethics requirement of the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy as well as continuing education for CGFOs. Click here to register.
