ACPEN Attends the 2015 NE States Conference

We at ACPEN partner with a number of state CPA societies from across the country, to help provide the best possible CPE for accountants. Thus, several of our intrepid ACPEN employees attended the 2015 Northeast States Conference.

We got to meet with several presenters we know and love (K2 Enterprises and Executive Education for instance) as well as a number of the state society representatives (whom, we also know and love).

So all and all, it was a productive, and great excuse to go to Florida in February trip! Gallery below.

Also, for those of you who are twitter-y inclined, you can see more with #necpe15 over on twitter.

Stop what you’re doing and rent a puppy! [Updated]

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 1.04.08 PMThree things you should know about the ACPEN team.

1. We make the best accounting CPE in the business.

2. We’re based out of Dallas.

3. We love puppies.

Thus we’re very excited about this.

Today only! Via D Magazine:

Animal Planet + Uber + Dallas Animal Service have teamed up to bring adorable, adoptable dogs right to your door. Here’s how it works: Open up the Uber App between 11 am and 3 pm, today Wednesday, January 28, request the “puppies” option and for only $30 you get 15 minutes of cuddle time with an extra-cute pup.

If you’re in Dallas, the clock is ticking! Quick get a puppy!

Ps. Tip of the hat to one of our directors, Charlie, for bringing this to our attention.



Update 3:10 PM CST: Tragically, the deadline for renting Uber Puppies has passed, and all of our attempts to rent a puppy were in vain.

The details seem to be sketchy, and it’s unlikely much of the president’s agenda will make it through congress. But, MarketWatch has nice quick breakdown of the specific tax proposals and their odds of making it through congress.

Also, in case you missed the speech, the Wall Street Journal was nice enough to create this handy, bite sized (2 minute) version:
