The Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants continues to expand programming in the Upper Peninsula with the event, “The Inquisitive Accountant: Fraud, Red Flags, Tax Accounting and Ethics.”

MICPA has partnered with Northern Michigan University Continuing Education and Workforce Development for the event from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, May 12 at Northern Michigan University Bottum Center, 1401 Presque Isle Ave., Marquette.

“We are excited to expand programming in the UP to our northern Michigan members,” said Dan Kolasinski, director of program development. “As our membership grows, we will continue to provide more educational opportunities for MICPA members. Northern Michigan communities will ultimately benefit from our members’ expertise.”

The program will provide insights to inquisitiveness, especially as it interacts with realities of corporate and accounting firm budgets and profitability requirements. Participants will also hear real-life ethical dilemmas to challenge the accountant’s inquisitiveness.

"What happens when accountants miss important red flags that suggest there are financial? Why does this happen? Is it negligence? Willful blindness? Or worse?" said Albert Spalding, associate professor at the Mike Ilitch School of Business. "This program looks at the intersection of professional ethics, liability and red flags -- both generally and in situations that call for verifying information when preparing tax returns."

Registration is $275 and available by visiting
