It’s back-to-school time! And because we’re part of a profession that never stops learning, it’s time for chapter CPE to start again. Our first CPE luncheon at the Ortiz Center will be on Friday, Sept. 11. We’ll be recognizing our recent 50-year fellow honorees and introducing the newest Corpus Christi area CPAs to you. Be sure to submit your registration by Sept. 4 so you don’t miss out!

It’s also time for our chapter to connect with the local accounting programs in high schools and colleges in our area. Check out the opportunities listed in this newsletter to help a future CPA connect to the profession and maybe even find a sharp new hire for your firm or company.

We look forward to seeing you next week at the Ortiz Center!

Be a Mentor. Find a Mentor.
Thanks to the dedication of CPA members and the interest of local accounting students, the chapter’s mentor program continues to be successful with over 50 pairs of mentees and mentors matched since the program began six years ago. With the start of the new school year we will be matching mentor/mentee pairs at TAMUCC, TAMUK and Del Mar. Consider giving your time to mentor an interested accounting student and shed light on what the profession is all about. It’s a small commitment with BIG impact!
