CalCPA Committees: Build Your Leadership Skills, Share Your Expertise

Want to use your talents at the statewide level? Your opportunity awaits—the application period will soon open to serve on our CalCPA committees for 2016-17. From estate planning to technology, and from personal financial planning to taxation, there’s a committee meeting your interests and expertise.

And if you serve on a state committee and would like to continue, reapplication is necessary.

Serving on state committees allows you to work with your peers on projects that increase members’ technical knowledge, enhance the profession’s image and draw the best and brightest into accounting—all while you build leadership skills and make valuable contacts.

Keep an eye out for details about the application process. Applications will be due Jan. 15 and appointments will be made in early 2016 for the May 1–April 30 committee term.
