Every year, local PICPA chapters host Accounting Career Day programs across the state. The program is a one day event that invites students to learn about the diverse career paths in accounting first hand from local CPAs.
The 2012 programs were a huge success thanks the planning efforts of the chapter schools and colleges committees. In October and November members spoke to 1,155 high school students from 62 high schools at 9 programs across the state.
