2010 CPA Careers Conference

Every October, more than 500 high school students from across the state get the opportunity to delve deeper into the CPA profession with the CSCPA CPA Careers Conference. With exciting speakers such as forensic accountants, a panel of new and young professionals, and Connecticut's own CPA rock band, the two conferences offer an exciting glimpse into a diverse profession.
