The SEC Practice Series: An Integrated Group of One-Day Training Seminars 

Developed by Jeffrey M. Brinn, CPA, CEO of, a former chairman of the New York State Society of CPAs SEC Practice Committee, and the founder and six-time chairman of the NYSSCPA/ Foundation for Accounting Educationís SEC/FASB Annual Winter Conference, this set of modular one-day seminars is designed for professionals in accounting firms, who audit or advise SEC registrants, or those responsible for preparing their SEC filings.

The past few years have been truly extraordinary for all those involved in SEC Practice. After the Enron bankruptcy, there ensued a wave of accounting scandal disclosures and worse misdeeds, involving, among others: Adelphia, Tyco, Xerox and of course WorldCom and its bankruptcy, the largest in history.  This was followed by the demise and criminal conviction of Arthur Andersen, once a respected member of the largest firms and the enactment of The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the creation of The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board and in a brief period of time, the most trusted profession became a regulated industry.

SEC Practice, in whatever aspect it is undertaken, whether as accountant, auditor, consultant, audit committee member or advisor thereto, requires both experience and in-depth knowledge of the many rules and regulations, which sometimes change in real time. The SEC Practice Series is designed to meet those educational needs.

The three one-day seminars, each of which can be taken individually or in combination with one or both of the others, are as follows:

The SEC Practice Series Training Seminars are presented in your organizationís conference room or chosen facility, on a date scheduled by you, to both maximize the convenience and minimize the cost.
