Educators

From camaraderie and career speakers to professional development, idea sharing and classroom resources, the CTCPA supports high school and college educators (and their students, of course!).

CPAs as well as non-certified full-time accounting faculty meeting eligibility requirements are welcome to enjoy the many benefits of CTCPA membership.

Connections with other educators.
All accounting faculty members at two- and four-year colleges and universities in Connecticut are invited to join one of our newest groups: the Educators FOOD ("For Our Own Development") Group. The group meets in person three times a year to discuss trends, opportunities, and more - and the CTCPA Connect online community is available for online discussion 24/7.

Career speakers and presentations.
We love to come to your school or campus for career fairs, accounting club presentations, or accounting classes, with a variety of available presentations:

  • Accounting career options (from CTCPA staff or working CPAs)
  • Becoming a CPA in Connecticut
  • New and young CPA panel discussions.

Graduate student marketing opportunities.
Attract top-notch go-getters to your graduate program by sponsoring a new and young professionals event or advertising in the CTCPA's Guide to Connecticut CPA Employers  or Connecticut CPA magazine.
