Annual Business Meeting

We’ll conduct our annual business meeting, including remarks from outgoing CTCPA Chair Timothy Hedley of Fordham University and incoming Chair Kevin Lawlor, elect the 2024-2025 Board of Directors, install our new Advisory Council members, and honor the Jack Brooks Leadership Award winner. We'll wrap up the evening with a networking hour with wine, beer, and hors d'oeuvres. 

Keynote Address: Filling the CPA Pipeline with Liz Barentzen

Everyone’s talking about filling the CPA pipeline – including the Center for Audit Quality (CAQ). We’ll be joined by Liz Barentzen, the Vice President, Operations and Talent Initiatives at CAQ to learn more about their efforts.

Recent CAQ research reveals that reaching students before they get to college is critical, with 66% of accounting majors reporting they had decided to major in accounting before they arrived on a college campus. The CAQ, through its Bold Ambition and Accounting+ initiatives, has partnered with a number of organizations to help reach younger audiences via a scalable digital platform implemented in more than 3,000 high schools in the 2023-2024 school year alone, with impressive results.
