Paul N. Iannone, an
attorney with Rogin
Nassau in Hartford, is
a founding member
of the Collaborative
Business
Dispute
Resolution (CBDR), a
group of 15 independent Connecticut
attorneys who utilize a non-adversarial
team approach to resolve business,
probate, property or other civil dis-
putes without court involvement. The
collaborative method differs from me-
diation in that both parties have an
attorney advocating on their behalf
while working collaboratively toward
a mutual resolution. The newly formed
group is the first of its kind in the state
and provides a less expensive and
time-consuming alternative to litiga-
tion and arbitration. Learn more at

Connecticut State Board of Accountancy
Will Grant CPA Exam Extensions to Select
Candidates Affected by Exam Revision Delays
At its March 7 meeting, the Connecticut State Board
of Accountancy addressed the concerns of CPA
candidates who are facing test result delays caused by
the launch of the revised CPA Exam.
The revised Exam launched on April 1 for the Quarter 2
(April 1 - May 31) testing window. Consistent with Exam
launches in the past, there will be a delay in the release
of scores following the close of the initial testing window. Scores will be
released once, approximately 10 weeks after the close of the testing window.
Because of this delay, the State Board will, upon request, automatically
approve an extension to December 31, 2017 for any candidates whose
18-month window expires during Quarter 2 of 2017. Candidates must
request the extension using the Exam Extension Request form. Find a
link to the form on our website at www.ctcpas.org/examextension.
All other extension requests, including those for candidates whose 18-month
window expires during Quarter 3 or Quarter 4 of 2017, will be considered on
a case-by-case basis.
