This is a recording of a live presentation on December 2, 2009.
IMPORTANT: Due to the inability to track attendance at this recorded event, a Letter of Participation for attendance verification is not provided.
If you are an ASPPA member, you now must take at least two hours of continuing education in professional ethics every two years. If you are enrolled to practice before the IRS as an Enrolled Retirement Plan Agent (ERPA), Enrolled Agent, or Enrolled Actuary, you need to take 2 hours of ethics annually. If you are a member of the bar, almost any state bar, the ethics requirements may be even more rigorous.
Why? Why have they imposed these rules? Why do they think busy professionals need to spend their time talking about their own duties rather than learning about the duties of their clients? Do they fear that the people most in need of regular reminders of professional obligations are the ones least likely to attend? Or perhaps is it the realization that almost nobody would take such training if it weren’t mandated?
Whatever the reason, the real challenge for the teacher of a professional ethics course is two-fold: (1) To make the course as relevant as possible for the everyday professional life of those who attend; and (2) To make the course as enjoyable as possible. After all, there’s no ethical obligation to make an ethics course boring.
Relevance and good humor. That’s what Derrin Watson will bring in our first ever ethics seminar. Yes, you’ll hear the rules. But they’ll be presented in practical situations, to show how they apply in “real life.” And they’ll be presented with the memorable, light-hearted approach the recipient of ASPPA’s 2006 Educator’s Award brings to all his teaching.
