MSRB TO OFFER CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION CREDIT FOR WEBINARS AND EVENTS

Washington, DC – Participants in educational webinars hosted by the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) are now eligible to receive continuing professional education (CPE) credit. The MSRB is a registered sponsor of CPE in  accordance with the requirements of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA). The CPE credit applies to both live and on-demand events.

“Joining the ranks of the National Registry of CPE Sponsors affirms the MSRB’s ability to provide high-quality educational content that supports market knowledge and compliance with municipal market regulations,” said MSRB Executive Director Lynnette Kelly. “The designation is another step in the development of the MSRB’s educational offerings.”

Certified public accountants and many other professionals that work in the municipal market must earn CPE credit to maintain professional licenses or comply with internal training requirements. The MSRB will provide webinar participants with certificates of attendance for its events upon completing the CPE requirements.  

The MSRB’s educational offerings include its online Education Center, where investors, state and local governments and others can access free resources about the municipal market, outreach events and live and on-demand webinars covering new and developing regulations.
