As part of our continuing commitment to providing high-quality continuing professional education, Blackbaud is registered sponsor of the National Registry of CPE Sponsors, a program offered by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA). This registry recognizes that our continuing professional education for accountants meets nationally recognized standards.
Accountants are required by state governing boards to earn CPE credits to maintain and enhance their professional competence. As a registered sponsor, Blackbaud's name and address is printed on a registry that is distributed to state boards of accountancy and made available to licensed accountants across the country.
