2019 Summit CPE Credits

All organizations face uncertainties and opportunities as they work to preserve and enhance value for their stakeholders. Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) has evolved over the last 20 years to help organizations achieve those goals. The Association for Federal Enterprise Risk Management (AFERM) believes that ERM is more important now than ever for federal agencies to identify and manage the risks and opportunities they face as the new Administration adjusts policies, strategies, and program objectives across the government.

AFERM’s Annual ERM Summit is the premier event for federal ERM practitioners and leaders to network, share best practices, and learn about helpful and actionable ideas you can implement within your organization. Whether your ERM program is just getting started, you are working to make your ERM program more integrated and predictive, or you are seeking advanced concepts to achieve strategic ERM maturity, the AFERM Summit will have plenary speakers and break-out session tracks to meet your needs. This is your chance to meet distinguished speakers, thought leaders, and ERM practitioners that can help you enhance the value of your ERM program.

Register now to witness how you can build a risk-aware culture, increase transparency, and provide senior leaders risk-informed choices for key decisions. If you are not an AFERM member, please join now to receive discounted admission to this event, along with other membership benefits.

For this Summit, we are offering 10 CPE (Continuing Professional Education) hours. For more information about speakers and session descriptions, please refer to the agenda and speaker pages.

CPE Tracking Process

AGA will distribute CPEs for the Summit on behalf of AFERM. AGA adheres to the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) standards for CPE programs, which require an attendance verification process for all training events.

In-person participant (at training location)

AGA scans name badges at varying times and will use this information to tally your education session attendance and create your CPE certificate. For each individual session, you must attend the entire session to receive credit. Participants who arrive more than ten minutes late for a session or depart early may not receive CPE credit.

Virtual participant (from your home/office)

During the virtual training event, you will be required to click on a series of pop-up boxes that will appear at random times. When these pop-up boxes appear on your screen you will have a short period of time to click on the “Continue Viewing” button. If you fail to click on these pop-ups, you will be ineligible to claim CPE credits for that session.

Announcing the pop-up alertness checks to fellow attendees in the chat box during a session is against NASBA policy and you may be ineligible to earn the CPE credit.

CPE retrieval

CPE certificates will be available to print online within two weeks after the conclusion of the Summit. Each participant will receive an email from AGA stating that the CPE certificate is ready to be downloaded.

To download your CPE certificate at that time, sign into your “My AGA Sign-in” with your username and password (established during Summit registration). Once logged in, click on “My CPE” on the left to view and print your CPE certificate for the Summit.

Please note that CPE certificates are available only to attendees who have paid the event balance in full.
