Impact on Conferences and Seminars

Gear Up Conferences and Seminars

We are currently planning public seminars and week-long conferences as we did in 2019, but there will be contingencies should COVID-19 still affect gatherings at the time of events. We're exploring virtual experience options that provide critical learning while practicing social distancing.

AuditWatch and TaxWatch Public Seminars

Public seminars are planned and scheduled. Spring and early summer seminars may be adjusted should COVID-19 protocols continue to demand social distancing. We're exploring more virtual seminars that provide critical learning while allowing attendees to be at home.

We're regularly assessing impact to later-season events and will adjust accordingly.

Cancellation policy

We are sensitive to the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, and we're reviewing our cancellation policies to afford you the flexibility to confidently pursue the education you need.

For AuditWatch/TaxWatch events, please check the AuditWatch/TaxWatch Cancellation Policy page for the most current policy. We will always keep this page up to date with the current policy.

For Gear Up events, please check the Gear Up Cancellation Policy page for the most current policy. We will always keep this page up to date with the current policy.


Virtual CPE Options

As social distancing and working from home becomes a priority for many, we want to make you aware of the virtual learning options available during this time.
