This interactive and engaging update of the trends and issues facing the CPA Profession is designed to help our members be ‘future ready’. We will cover the latest hard trends of technology, demographics and standards/regulations and how you can learn to use these to anticipate the future. Come learn about the new President and Congress to the Maryland State House and our State Board of Accountancy.

This special Business & Industry edition focused on the issues facing our members in business, industry, non-profits and government. Special emphasis on the issues facing CFOs, Controllers and staff in the corporate community.

Our road show of professional issues updates covers the state of Maryland reaching close to 2,000 CPAs annually. Given by MACPA-BLI CEO, Tom Hood with extensive polling and Q&A to track the issues CPAs are most concerned about and to inform what MACPA-BLI are doing about it. Each session provides four hours of free CPE and is offered twice a year.

Blockchain Can Alter the Technology Landscape and Change the Manner in Which Business Transac:ons Are Conducted Sources: AICPA research, h1p://www.pwc.com/us/en/financial-services/fintech/assets/blockchain-infographic.png Blockchain: A decentralized transparent ledger of all transac:ons across a peer-to-peer (P2P) network. Someone requests a transac:on. How Does Blockchain Work? The transac:on is broadcast to a peer-to-peer (P2P) network of computers, called nodes. Using algorithms, the network of nodes validates the transac:on and user’s status. AQer verifica:on, the transac:on is combined with other transac:ons to create a new block of data for the ledger. The new block is then added to the exis:ng blockchain, in a way that is permanent and unalterable. The transac:on is complete. Technology and cyber issues
  27. ‘Accountants do a lot of transac@on processing, reconcilia@on and control, and that could change significantly if this technology gets adopted on a widespread basis. The cost savings that the banks are looking at are huge, and most of that saving is people who do the back office, so whether you view those as accountants or ledgers, there’s a degree of challenge to those in the accoun@ng profession who work in finance func@ons.’ Why should you care?
