All APIPA 2022 courses are available free of charge for government accountability professionals within the insular areas. There is no cost to register and attend.
After closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the insular areas and carefully considering the health and well-being of all those involved, as well as the challenges each of the island governments are facing, the Association of Pacific Islands Public Auditors (APIPA) has decided that the 33rd Annual Conference will be offered virtually.
We recognize how difficult it is to travel due to restrictions and COVID-19 challenges each insular government is facing. APIPA has excellent conference sessions and instructors ready to assist with professional development for insular area officials. The APIPA 2022 virtual conference will provide participants with access to timely, relevant course content in an online format. Join us for professional development that will enable you to better serve insular government organizations and communities

All APIPA 2022 class sessions will be presented online using Zoom. You will need a computer (desktop or laptop) with a good internet connection so you can see and hear the presentations. You may connect to classes from anywhere and the experience is like participating in a Zoom meeting.
