handling
complex
management
challenges, network with other up-
and-comers, and discuss a host of
strategic issues facing CPAs and the
accounting industry.
The AICPA selected the 30 attendees
of the Leadership Academy from more
than 120 candidates recommended by
their employers, state CPA societies,
or both. All candidates had to submit
resumes that included work history,
licensure information, professional
volunteer activities, community serv-
ice, and awards and honors. In addi-
tion, the candidates each had to sup-
ply a statement explaining why partic-
ipating in the Leadership Academy
would be important.
