Notice from the OSCPA:

It has been brought to our attention some members have received marketing messages from a former business partner of the OSCPA which has led to some confusion. For the past several years, the OSCPA partnered with Vern Hoven to provide the OSCPA’s Federal Tax Update. Based on feedback from past attendees, we conducted a national search to secure a presenter that would maintain the quality of the annual tax update at the highest level on a long-term basis.

As a result, we are fortunate to now partner with Mark Mirsky, CPA, CGMA, and his co-presenter, Stephen Brooks, CPA, PFS, CFP®, to lead this highly sought-after program. Mark was a co-presenter at last year’s Federal Tax Updates and received some of our highest speaker ratings to date. We are excited to offer the expertise and knowledge base that Mark and Stephen possess. Their ability to infuse new life into the program will ensure quality tax education for many years to come.

We hope you will join us in welcoming Mark and Stephen for the One-Day Federal Tax Updates on November 5 (Tulsa) and November 6 (Midwest City) or the OSCPA’s Two-Day Federal Tax Update on January 17-18 (Midwest City). Your continued investment in OSCPA educational programs helps to ensure our long-standing tradition of providing the very best learning opportunities to our members. We appreciate your continued support and loyalty.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the OSCPA Learning Department.
