Join us on Tuesday, October 10th as we host the 2017 Member Engagement Tour and a 4 hours of brand new Chapter PD that will satisfy your 3 year Ethics Requirement!

CPABC Fraser Valley Chapter is pleased to host CPABC’s new President and CEO Lori Mathison, LLB, FCPA, FCGA and other members of the governance team for the annual Member Engagement Tour as they provide updates on the accounting profession in BC and identify priorities for the year ahead.

To make the event even more valuable the Chapter is excited to provide two brand new PD offerings:

Real Business Ethics and the CPA Mindset

This course will develop your ethical mindset, explain the breadth of business ethics today, help you understand where ethical risks may lie, and provide you with ideas and tools to integrate business ethics into your daily work and professional responsibilities.

Ethical Dilemmas: The Thick Grey Line

This course provides participants with opportunities to evaluate ethical scenarios in a variety of contexts that are realistic and representative of the CPA demographic (including industry, not-for- profit, public sector, and public practice). Participants will increase their competence and confidence in interpreting and applying the CPA Code of Professional Conduct to real-life workplace challenges.


Our speaker is Laura Friedrich, MSc, FCPA, FCGA a principal of Friedrich & Friedrich Corp, a professional research, standards, and education consultancy firm. The firm has over 15 years experience conducting projects throughout North and South America, Asia, and Eastern Europe.

Laura has led more than 150 professional development sessions in a wide range of topic areas including governance, leadership, ethics, project management, curriculum and exam development.

Past attendees of her seminars can attest to her ability to facilitate and encourage thought provoking discussions that lead to increased awareness of the complex ethical issues that confront CPA’s in all sectors.

These seminars are for CPAs who are interested in encouraging an ethics-based culture within their organization and for members who enjoy an actively engaging seminar setting using small group discussions and interactive polling to analyze real-life ethical scenarios.
