Workshop graduates hone networking skills and prep for CPA Exam


Ninety-eight students graduated from the AICPA 2017 Accounting Scholars Leadership Workshop (ASLW), a program designed to strengthen ethnic-minority students' professional and networking skills, and help them prepare for the CPA Exam.

The students represented a diverse range of backgrounds, from colleges and universities across the United States and Puerto Rico. The annual program is for students who demonstrate a strong desire to complete the CPA Exam and an interest in pursuing a career in accounting. The AICPA Foundation covers the participants' travel, hotel accommodations, and meals. The ASLW emphasizes the variety of opportunities that the CPA profession provides and how CPAs can make a positive difference through leadership development.
