CORONAVIRUS - COVID-19 UPDATE FROM THE MSCPA

Health and safety of our members, speakers, partners, sponsors and staff are of the utmost concern to the MSCPA. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in Mississippi.

Events

At the MSCPA, we take the health and comfort of our members, partners, vendors and staff extremely seriously. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 health crisis and the increasing number of confirmed cases in Mississippi. In light of the WHO declaring coronavirus a pandemic, we are cautiously evaluating our events and meetings. While staff and building management are following CDC guidelines to limit risk, out of an abundance of caution, we will be livestreaming all May and June courses and conferences from our MSCPA Training Center in Ridgeland. In person classes will resume once CDC and MS restrictions are lifted. If you have any questions, please email cpe@ms-cpa.org.
