ACPEN Broadcast Seminars
What is it like to attend a Public Broadcast seminar?
(803) 791-4181 ext. 110
Each ACPEN full day broadcast, designated as the ACPEN Signature Series™, is delivered to public sites by broadband internet technology. Each site, usually at a university or community college, is a classroom setting where groups of professionals from the same area come together to participate in an ACPEN course. Prior to the course, participants will be provided the course manual electronically. The course manual is a specially developed compilation of outlines, articles and examples provided by the presenters to support and elaborate on the discussion that they will watch during the course. The program will be presented on one or more large television monitors or, at some sites, large screen TVs.
In addition to public group sites, full day courses are also available as live webcasts, or live webcast replays that can be viewed by CPAs individually. In addition, short webcasts, usually two hours in length, are available only as webcasts, not at group sites. Webcasts are intended for use by individual CPAs watching at their own computer, using streaming video technology, provided by an internet ASP.

Faculty Interactivity Format and Agenda
Attendees, at group sites or webcast viewers, are invited to participate in each program by emailing in questions to the panel, that will then respond during the program. The course is organized much like a traditional seminar. The full day course has appropriate breaks and a lunch period. Shorter webcasts may not include a break. ACPEN courses that are part of the ACPEN Signature Series™ delivers a unique educational bonus! Instead of a single Discussion Leader, each of these ACPEN courses will give you the insight of a whole panel of anywhere from three to a dozen national experts, regulators and practitioners. You receive insight on each point from several presenters. ACPEN viewer evaluations attest to the interactivity of the presentation and the quality of the content you will receive.
The broadcast is recorded on Central Time. Therefore, seminars are 10:00 am - 6:00 pm, Eastern Time.
For any issues with registration or technical problems during an event, please contact the ACPEN Help Desk by phone at 800-747-1719 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Help Desk is available to assist you by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please allow 1 business day for a response to an email request.
Where will the satellite broadcast be held?
We have established locations in the state where ACPEN broadcasts will be presented. These may be at colleges or universities. The setting will vary from site to site but you will always have accessible parking, refreshments available, and food service convenient to the classroom. The schedule below will list where the sites are planned for this year. However, if your city is not listed as a site, but you feel CPAs in your area would like to have ACPEN available in your area, call Reva Brennan at (888) 557-4814, Ext. 103 for more information. Also, if your firm or corporation has broadband internet capability or C-Band satellite reception capability, you may be able to receive ACPEN broadcasts at your office. To set up an in house group broadcast, please contact Reva Brennan at (888) 557-4814, EXT. 103 or email@example.com.
