IIA Portland Members,
For those of you who are Oregon CPA’s and renewing your license this year or next, please read below.
As many of you know the Oregon Board of Accountancy (“the Board”) is now requiring licensees to submit all CPE certificates along with their renewal. One of the Board requirements for CPE certificate content is that the individual’s name is printed on the certificate. The IIA Portland chapter practice has been to issue CPE’s without names and maintain records of attendees through sign-in sheets. Going forward the IIA will be issuing CPE certificates with the participants name to match with the Board requirements.
To comply with the requirement for 7/01/10 – 6/30/12 certificates that were issued without the participant’s name, the Board has informed our chapter that the individual should also include with the CPE certificate, a copy of the sign-in sheet, with their name highlighted. I have attached an example from our April Luncheon of how you could do this.
For your convenience, all sign-in sheets have been posted in a .zip file on our Members Library website. The referencing is date of CPE (MMDDYY) followed by the title of the program. Again, you will only need to do this for IIA Portland CPE certificates that do not have your name printed on them.
Please let me know if you have any issues accessing the files.
Lastly, the Board noted that if you do not submit the IIA sign-in sheets with your initial renewal packet (postmarked by June 30th), you will not be penalized. You can submit the sign-in sheets later or upon request from the Board. So for those of you who have already submitted your renewal or will not have time to match up your sign-in sheets and CPE certificates prior to the deadline, you can submit the IIA sign-in sheets only, after the June 30th. Again, all other documentation to comply with your CPA renewal will still need to be submitted prior to the deadline in order to avoid a penalty.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
