CPE Authority

  • 1.  CPE Authority

    ​​I have just taken over as the President of the Royal Chapter in the United Kingdom.  As I was going through paperwork left over by the previous board, I noticed "Certificates of Training" granting CPEs.  Who has the authority to grant CPEs?  Or from whom would I get the authority?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

    From the Chapter handbook:

    Chapter Organization

    The Bylaws of the Society authorize the Executive Committee to establish chapters for the purpose of providing it’s members the maximum benefits, opportunities and services offered by the Society, in it’s program to encourage self-improvement and to give each member an opportunity for free interchange of ideas with the objective of improving financial management. It is essential that every chapter establish and maintain an efficient and well-informed executive and administrative organization, in close contact with the National Headquarters...

    Planning Chapter Events


    A CPE hour may be granted for each 50 minutes of participation in programs and activities that qualify. Fractional hours may also be granted if appropriate. At conferences and conventions where individual presentations are less than and/or more than 50 minutes, the sum of the presentations should be considered as one total program. For example, two 90-minute, two 50-minute and three 40-minute presentations equal 400 minutes or eight CPE hours. Sponsors of CPE programs should monitor their programs to accurately assign the appropriate number of hours. CDFM participants should receive CPE hours only for the actual time they attend the program. Preparation time for students participating in a CPE program is not counted. Further information on CPE is available under the CPE policy menu tab on the ASMC CDFM website.
