Surgent, the leading continuing professional education (CPE) provider for CPAs and other accounting, financial, and tax professionals, today announced the official launch of its new premium monthly webinar series, Surgent Futurecast™, a series of timely, practical 1-hour webinars taught by an all-star cast of leading national experts in tax and accounting.
The new series demonstrates Surgent’s mission to go beyond just providing the CPE credits that CPAs and other professionals must earn to maintain their professional credentials; instead Surgent aims to serve as the most reliable and trustworthy source of the ever-evolving practical and strategic information CPAs, EAs, and other tax and financial professionals need to excel professionally.
“This premium monthly offering gives CPAs a direct line to the leading national experts in the topics most critical to their business,” said Amy Plent, JD, Senior Vice President of Continuing Education Curriculum for Surgent. “We’ve made it easy to earn CPE while staying ahead of the curve in any practice environment.”
The all-star cast of presenters includes Surgent founder Jack Surgent, CPA, Forbes writer and tax policy expert Tony Nitti, CPA, who recently signed an agreement to teach CPE exclusively for Surgent, CPA Trendlines publisher Rick Telberg, CPA, award-winning training professional and financial services expert Art Pulis, MBA, practice trends experts Jason Blumer and Darren Root and other notable accounting experts. Confirmed guests on selected programs include succession planning expert Joel Sinkin and practice acceleration expert Ira Rosenbloom, with many more to come.
Webinars will be offered monthly from May through December, 2017, in four topic areas, with one webinar from each topic offered each month. Topics include “Trending in Tax,” which covers hot-button issues in tax policy, “Practicing Smarter,” which offers fresh perspectives on themes, trends and technologies affecting CPA practices today, “Thriving in Corporate,” tailored to CPAs working in business environments, and “A&A Today,” a course that explores the changing Accounting and Auditing environment.
“Surgent recognizes that CPAs want and need far more from their professional education than just CPE credits,” said Evan Kramer, CEO of Surgent. “That’s why we continue to innovate with new programs that support and accelerate our customers’ career growth—no matter where or how they practice.”
Registration for a Futurecast webinar is open now at Surgent’s website. In addition to being available for purchase by individual episode, CPAs may also purchase an entire topic series, or get complete access to all four series with the purchase of Surgent’s Unlimited Plus Package. Surgent also offers flexible pricing for firms who wish to provide access to the Futurecast series for their staff.
