Time to Blitz

Join the Alabama Society’s Young CPA Cabinet as a volunteer when they gear up for their annual high school Classroom Blitz, November 13-17.  The Blitz is one of several initiatives of the Cabinet:  the YCPA Charity Golf Tournament in June, the young and emerging professionals’ session at the Annual Meeting and speaking engagements in support of the ASCPA’s campus visits.  The Blitz has been instrumental in building bridges between the Society and high school teachers, whether they teach accounting, finance, economics or related topics.   

The YCPAs have prepared a PowerPoint presentation which inspires students to major in accounting in college and challenges them to sharpen their money smarts.  More than 50 schools sign up each year and 60+ volunteers spend one period or all day in the school they choose.
