The Accounting Continuing Professional Education Networkis very pleased with the results from our seventh year of webcasting ACPEN programs, along with the traditional satellite broadcasts that state societies sponsor in many states. The transition to a new internet ASP, BizVision, was a great challenge during the early part of 2009 but the dividends from this change have been dramatic, in terms of the enhanced catalog and admin system. We want to thank all of you for your patience, understanding and support while we made this transition to a better system. In addition to the webcasts of the eight full day courses, we produced a couple of short webcasts of 2 to three hours each.
