No, unfortunately we are unable to accommodate introductions from CPA family members this year. We will have a professional speaker introduce all CFE passers. For health and safety reasons we have shortened the ceremonies this year; as a result of the condensed format, we are unable to accommodate these introductions this year. We appreciate your understanding.

Though masks are not currently mandated, we strongly recommend that people wear masks during the event. Please see CPABC’s current in-person event protocols and health and safety information.

At this time, each CFE passer is allowed two guests maximum for the ceremony. Additional guests will be confirmed if space allows closer to the event date. This will be confirmed two weeks prior to the ceremony.

Like past Convocations, the event will include remarks from special guests and valedictorians, and all CFE passers will have the opportunity to cross the stage in celebration of their achievements. A professional speaker will introduce all CFE passers by their first and last name. There will not be food or drink service.

We will have a professional photographer on-site and photos will be released afterwards. There will also be multiple photo props, CPABC signage, and décor that you can take photos with before and after the event.
