olunteers are the life blood of
the Community Accounting Aid
& Services (CAAS) mission of
providing one-on-one accounting as-
sistance to income-disadvantaged in-
dividuals, small businesses, and small
not-for-profit organizations. Our volun-
teers also participate in community-
sponsored low-income tax clinics and
serve as instructors for basic business
and accounting educational courses in
Connecticut. In addition, some serve
as members of our board of directors.
We are very grateful for their service.
Through their actions, people in need
receive professional assistance that
might otherwise be unavailable. They
also help to demonstrate the commit-
ment of CPAs to our state.
The following have given of their time
and skills during the past year. Many
have served in more than one role or
on more than one case.
