Continuting Education Credits for Workshops and Concurrent Sessions at the NCURA  Region V Annual Regional Meeting 


The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy allows select NCURA national programs to issue CPE credits.  The annual regional meetings and regional workshops are not approved to offer CPE credits.


CEU credits are not currently offered by Region V due to the extreme administrative burden and retention requirements for monitoring these credits. 

Contact Hours for CRA and CPRA

Documentation for contact hours is left up to the individual member.  Each hour spent actively participating in an educational workshop or concurrent session is documented as 1 contact hour.  Backup should be retained by the member to  justify his/her contact hours in the event  they are chosen to be audited during the recertification process.  The member would log contact hours on the contact hours spreadsheet and should keep a copy of the program (may be printed from the Guidebook  App) as well as a copy of the notes  taken during the workshop/session to “prove” attendance.
