When I started working in accounting, I was told to join the FICPA. I had no idea what it was, except that my firm expected me to be a member. The first FICPA event I attended was a holiday social where I met a woman who told me about the Young CPA group and their mission to engage Young CPAs in the accounting profession. It’s hard to believe that was over four years ago! (more…)
On Thursday, December 3rd, a bunch of wild and crazy CPA’s in Panama City Beach, FL took over the Dave & Buster’s in Pier Park. Okay – we weren’t wild and crazy, but we had a chance to be! The local Miracle Strip Chapter planned a holiday social for us and combined member appreciation, a student benefit, and the Young CPA’s into one event. To get in the door and receive free food and a free loaded game card all you had to do was bring school supplies.
The Chapter chose to select the Bay County School Homeless Education program to support this year. In the Bay County school system there are over 800 students who are considered homeless. The school supplies that we donated will be used by these kids throughout the school year.
