I am really excited about this opportunity for CPAs across the Commonwealth to make a collective difference in their communities. I encourage all Virginia CPAs and CPA firms to participate in CPA Day of Service. Whether as a department, a firm or individually, please take some time to give back. Volunteer during the day, on your lunch break or in the evening. Just volunteer.
I will be out in the community on CPA Day of Service, supporting the CPA profession and giving my time, and I hope to see many, many VSCPA members and CPA firms doing the same.
The CPA profession, as a whole, has a lot to be thankful for. Recent research from Sageworks, Inc., lists accounting firms among seven sectors in the country still thriving, even during the economic downturn. And CPAs are still among the most respected professionals across the board. What better way to celebrate the industry’s success — and the 100-year history of the CPA profession in Virginia — than by giving back to the individuals and businesses in our communities that have helped the profession thrive?
Please sign up today at www.vscpa.com/DayofService/ and tell us how you plan to get involved. You’ll get a free CPA Day of Service T-shirt for letting us know your plans before August 20.
