Previous Meeting September 20, 2017
The Pittsburgh Chapter held its first 2 CPE meeting of the year. We heard from Christopher S. McElroy, CPA and Mary D. Richter, CPA of Schneider Downs, on the impact to our region of Great Britain leaving the EU. Chris spoke on “Brexit: What you need to know” covering the history of the EU, the reasons Britain is leaving, what happens next and the impact this will have to US companies here and in Europe. Mary spoke on “GDPR: General Data Protection Regulation.” which goes into effect May 18, 2018. This effects all companies, here and abroad, that are selling goods or services to customers in the European Union. The Pittsburgh Chapter was provided a copy of these presentations which is available to Pittsburgh Chapter members upon request.
