Customizable breadth of topics drives CPAs to Ohio Accounting Shows.

The Ohio Accounting Show is coming to a town near you, bringing an extensive variety of topics to meet your needs. Over the two-day conference, attendees can customize a program of up to 16 hours of CPE from multiple subject tracks offering up to 90 sessions.

"It's a good variety and a good way of getting CPE while finding out what's new in the field," said sole practitioner Ralph Schwartz, CPA.

Greg Seabolt, CPA of Basic Media Group agrees. "Absolutely I would recommend the Ohio Accounting Show to my peers. It's a chance to diversify your education, get snippets of information and decide where you'd like to expand your knowledge."

Despite the struggling economy, indications are that attendance at OSCPA's four Ohio Accounting Shows this year could push the Society past the 2008 mark of 2,000. The reason for that, says Boyd Search, vice president of Education & Training, is that more members are recognizing the shows' value.

"These shows are not only the largest annual gatherings of accounting professionals and industry experts in Ohio, they are also a smart professional-development investment that members can make to sharpen their skills and keep their edge on the many hot issues in this challenging economy," Search said.

Variety also exists among the four shows themselves. "We're not presenting the same CPE program at four different locations," Search said. "Although the shows have some subject tracks in common--each one has tax and A&A, for example--the program lineup of subject tracks and sessions is unique to each event. That variety is one reason we suggest that members consider attending more than one show."

The shows also offer value beyond wide-ranging knowledge and CPE. Other benefits include:

* A great networking reception and other opportunities to connect with peers

* Exhibitors providing the latest business solutions

* A 100% satisfaction guarantee
