CPA Meeting Policies

Conflicting Events
Member companies are encouraged to take advantage of the unique networking opportunities offered during CPA Annual Meetings. However, members are to refrain from holding any type of structured meeting or event which conflicts with the Annual Meeting published Schedule of Events.  Member companies seeking to host events/meetings (e.g., golf tournament, hospitality suites) that take place in conjunction with the Annual Meeting must first notify and obtain approval from CPA. Approved events/meetings are not to be promoted as affiliated with CPA or part of its Annual Meeting program and are the full responsibility of the member company.  Failure to comply with this policy may jeopardize a member company’s attendance at a future CPA meeting.

Hotel Reservation Requirement
Attendees are expected to stay at the Grand Fiesta Americana (the host hotel).  Attendees not staying at Grand Fiesta Americana may be charged an additional $300 fee by CPA to offset any penalties assessed for not achieving the room block.
