Accountants can help fulfill their continuing education requirements on ethics through a seminar offered by Fort Hays State University's Small Business Development Center.

The seminar will be offered in Great Bend and Hays. Great Bend's seminar will be Tuesday, Oct. 19, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Front Door Facility, 1615 10th St. The seminar in Hays will be from 2 to 4 p.m., Friday, Oct. 21, at the Sternberg Museum of Natural History, 3000 Sternberg Drive.

Case studies will also be presented for discussion.
