The Society’s Young CPAs have taken on the task of combining accounting career presentations with a financial education program. The first week of November they appear before high school audiences with materials provided by the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE).
VOLUNTEER: the call will go out in the October magazine, and through the Tuesday Bulletin. Choose a school or offer to go to your child’s school or your alma mater – first week in November.
Universities and high schools invite CPAs to campus for career days and meet the firm events. We also field speaker requests for college accounting clubs, NABA and Beta Alpha Psi chapters.
VOLUNTEER: The ASCPA provides a PowerPoint template that you can customize, recruitment materials, plus student goodies. The emphasis is on attaining the CPA designation and telling your personal story.
