2021 Summit CPE Credits

All organizations are facing increased uncertainties and opportunities as they work to preserve and enhance value for their stakeholders.  The Association for Federal Enterprise Risk Management (AFERM) believes that it is critical for ERM professionals to help their organization’s leadership navigate today’s challenging environment and prepare for tomorrow’s uncertainties, particularly as we transition to a post-COVID-19 environment.  AFERM’s Annual ERM Summit Training Event 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.

This year’s theme is “ERM in a Changing World.”  As ERM leaders, we need to lead and shape the way our organizations respond to systemic changes. We need to articulate who we are, why we are here, and why we are relevant.  The 2021 theme invites ERM professionals to prioritize sustaining and building momentum for ERM in the federal space. Attendees will be encouraged to consider the many roles that ERM practitioners take and consider how these roles intersect and diverge. The 2021 AFERM Summit Training Event will feature the latest ideas, technologies, and cutting-edge practices to foster a dialogue around their adoption.

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.

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

All registered and paid attendees will receive instructions on how to download CPE certificate two weeks after the training.

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