High School CPA Careers Conference 2007

Central Connecticut State University on October 2, 2007
University of Bridgeport on October 26, 2007
The Accounting Crows

These CSCPA CPA Careers Conferences are designed to provide high school students with the opportunity to learn about the CPA profession and to find out what a CPA actually does in his or her career. Invitations are mailed out to all high schools in Connecticut in early September, giving educators the opportunity to bring interested college-bound juniors and seniors.

At this year’s events, students were introduced to some of the different career opportunities that becoming a CPA can offer by listening and interacting with a variety of speakers and members of the CSCPA. Also, courtesy of each college, participants were provided with breakfast foods, boxed lunches, raffle prizes, and the option to take part in a campus tour.
