The National Society of Accountants' 2000 Annual Convention promises to provide a wide selection of educational offerings for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit, as well as a special two-day Institute Symposium for Business, Financial and Estate Planning. As many as 34 CPEs can be earned through a combination of attendance at the education sessions (maximum: 18 CPEs) and the two-day Institute Symposium (16 CPEs).
