As of October 2017, NASP is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. This new benefit allows  NASP members to receive CPE credits for attending year-round programming including in-person conferences as well as virtual webinars.  Plan sponsor trustees and investment staff will continue to receive CPE Credits during the NASP Institute at the Annual Pension and Financial Services Conference. 

Additional tracks of programming for the full annual conference and chapter events,  subject to approval, will now be permitted to count towards CPE credit issuance. CPE credits cannot be given for previous conferences or programs or for future events/programs not pre-approved for CPE credits. The first CPE credit issuance occured with November 2017’s Webinar co-hosted by NASP HQ and Callan Associates. 

Please contact Marshay Hall at with questions regarding CPE credit issuance/pre-approval for chapter events, etc.

You are not required to join a local chapter and we do not automatically assign you a chapter based on your address. Individual chapters coordinate networking functions, seminars, and other events to support local members. We recommend becoming a member of local chapters in order to stay abreast of local events, state/municipal legislative activities as well as local business opportunities.

Note: NASP does not select your local chapter affiliation. You may select any chapter you wish to join. Your annual membership to NASP includes chapter affiliation – there is no additional fee to join.
