Why a Speaker’s Bureau?
There are many stereotypes regarding accountants…myths we would like to dispel. Our Speaker’s Bureau consists of CPAs who are passionate about their profession-not bean counters or egg heads wearing pocket protectors-but exciting, dynamic professionals like YOU! Currently, the accounting profession is experiencing a shortage of accounting students. You can help by teaching today’s high school students how exciting and diverse this profession can be.

What do high school students not know about today’s CPA?
Today’s CPA is the ultimate business consultant with knowledge and expertise in many areas. Today’s CPA works with technology companies, small businesses, international conglomerates, the FBI, the CIA, and professional sports teams. Whether in small town Kentucky or a bustling metropolis, a world of opportunity is out there for CPAs.

How does a volunteer get assigned?
When an educator calls and requests a speaker, KyCPA will e-mail members of the Speaker’s Bureau and ask for volunteers. Once confirmed, you will contact the teacher and set up a satisfactory date and time for each of you. 

To sign up NOW or find out more information, please contact Sam Soutar at 800.292.1754 or e-mail ssoutar@kycpa.org.

Thank you for being part of our efforts to move young people toward a career in accounting.
