What is an CPAFMA MAPCast?
An CPAFMA MAPCast is a live, interactive 60-minute conference presented over the telephone and over the Internet. You can attend from any location that has telephone and Internet access. You pay just one registration fee for as many participants as you wish at each call/log-in location.

Note that high-speed Internet access is not mandatory – the system works with dial-up but you must have separate connections for the audio and video portions. You may use cell phones for the audio if you have only one connection.

Who presents at an CPAFMA MAPCast?

Your MAPCast will have one or more speakers who are recognized experts on the topic. Conferences typically include a Q&A session; you can ask questions by phone or instant messaging options.

CPE Credits

State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website:

MAPCasts with an HR focus have been approved for one recertification credit hour toward PHR and SPHR recertification through the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI). For more information about certification or recertification, please visit the HRCI homepage at

What does my registration include?

Your registration includes long-distance charges for the audio portion and log-in to the video presentation. Once logged in, all handouts are downloadable prior to the start of the MAPCast. MAPCasts also include one hour of CPE.



No wasted time. Get right to the heart of the matter in a 60-minute session designed to easily fit into your busy schedule.


No airlines. No travel. No time out of the office. Listen and follow along from the comfort and convenience of your desk or conference room.


A telephone and computer are all the equipment you need. Just dial in and log-in to the system. That's it.

Ideal for multiple attendees.
