This is an emerging and rapidly evolving situation. LCPA will provide updated information as it becomes available.

This disaster resource page has typically focused on hurricanes, flooding or other weather-related events in Louisiana, but now we’ve turned our attention to the coronavirus — also known as COVID-19. At this unprecedented time, CPAs must think about how they will respond to coronavirus-related concerns from employees, clients, and customers. LCPA is monitoring developments and our Advocacy Team is focusing on bringing you relevant resources to help you and your organizations.

As in other critical times, LCPA continues to stand strong and advocate on your behalf. Through hurricanes, pandemics, or other major life events, LCPA is committed to getting you through it all. Contact us with any questions — we’re here to help.


As the COVID-19 situation constantly changes, LCPA will follow federal and state mandates and CDC guidance to protect the health of our staff, members, speakers, and sponsors. LCPA and our chapters have postponed all in-person events through the end of August. Please check our CPE/Events calendar for updates.

All Webcasts and On-Demand Courses, including Professional Ethics, are available and provide a convenient, no-travel, no-contact option.
