Conference Details

The Conference is set for September 21-23rd, 2022, in Calgary, Alberta. The Conference offers bookkeepers and accounting professionals an opportunity to collaborate, network, share successes and lessons learned while educating themselves in the critical aspects of their professional practice.

As a national certifying body, CPB Canada and its delegates use this unique experience to connect with peers, experts, and thought leaders from across Canada.

The Conference will be in person. However, decisions remain pending on whether consideration is given to recording sessions and allowing hybrid participation.

A maximum of 3 speakers per proposal is in effect.
