CPE sheets are included in all attendee registration envelopes/materials and CPE codes are available at each session offering CPE. All CPE sheets should be submitted to the MFM staff at the conclusion of the conference (original signed copy). CPAs will be mailed/emailed a CPE Certificate from MFM following the conference.  CPAs could potentially earn up to TBD units (typical offering, but may vary per year) at the conference.

Here are some general tips to make the most of the Media Finance Focus 2022 Conference:

 

  • Write down a burning question or challenge to build your schedule with sessions that will give you relevant ideas. Then onsite, record all the ideas you get to implement back at the office.

 

  • Earn CPE hours when attending to obtain or maintain your CPA designation––and additional credits if you attend the pre-conference sessions.

 

  • Check the registration page where the various rates are listed to see if you qualify for any of the lower group discount rates. Check with your colleagues before registering to see if they are also attending so you can pay the lowest available rate your group qualifies for.
