CPAs across North Carolina will take to their communities on Friday, September 21, 2012, for the first-ever CPA Day of Service. Sponsored by the state's CPA society, individual professionals, firms and groups will join forces to give back to charitable organizations of their choice.
“The public may not always know much about CPAs beyond yearly taxes, and I feel this event is a fantastic way to highlight all that is good about the profession and association,” says 2011–12 NCACPA Acting Chair Debbie Lambert. “September 21 will be a day for CPAs across the state to join together and give back to the communities in which we live, work, and play. These communities have given so much to us; now, it’s time for us to return the favor.”
In an effort to spotlight the importance of the event, Governor Beverly Perdue signed a proclamation officially declaring September 21 as “CPA Day of Service” in North Carolina. In her meeting with members, Governor Perdue expressed her gratitude for the thought and work that has gone into the event. She also stressed the importance and need for volunteerism in our state.
NCACPA hopes this event will build awareness of the CPA profession as well as the association. The association currently serves as the voice of more than 13,000 members in North Carolina. Every day CPAs serve their communities as trusted business advisors to companies and individuals; CPA Day of Service allows these same professionals to serve in other ways.
