As the Public Auditor for the CNMI it's my pleasure to welcome you to apipa2013.org, and to thank you for your interest in the 24th Annual Conference of the Association of Pacific Island Public Auditors. Our office has been working hard to develop a rich program for APIPA 2013 to support the ongoing education that has become an integral part of our professions. With first-class instructors and a wide range of financial and auditing courses planned, I have no doubt that each participant will find great value in their time in the CNMI.

As with previous conferences, we're grateful to the United States Department of Interior, Office of Insular Affairs, and the Graduate School USA's Pacific Islands Training Initiative, for their ongoing support of these annual conferences. I invite you to explore the resources on this website, contact us with any questions, and if possible, register to join us for this year's conference. I look forward to welcoming you to the CNMI.
