Certified and licensed accountants as well as other licensed tax practitioners are required to keep their accounting and tax knowledge updated to keep abreast of changing laws and regulations.  Practitioners are mandated to take courses each year to earn Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits.  Active membership in ASIA requires you to complete 48 hours of CPE during the two-year reporting period.

ASIA, an IRS Approved Continuing Education Provider, is pleased to provide these educational opportunities to tax practitioners throughout the State of Alaska. Our seminars are lead by highly-rated instructors in a classroom setting and are held at various times throughout the year.

Online registration for all ASIA seminars will be available on the website.

Please think of ASIA when it comes to your CPE needs!  We encourage you to explore emerging trends, issues, and strategies in niche areas while networking with your peers and interacting with fellow professionals throughout the State.  Our rates are competitive and discounts are provided to ASIA members.  Employees of members can attend these seminars at the member rate.  Visit our “Members” section for more information on becoming a member.
