Here's what a few CLI Alumni have said:

"I am honored that I was accepted into this program and I am beyond pleased with the results. I didn't know exactly what to expect going into it, but KyCPA has exceeded any expectations I had. I would definitely recommend this event to anyone looking to advance in their education."

"Fantastic learning and networking experience!"

"I have decided to pursue my CPA, but was not convinced in doing so before this weekend."

"My favorite part was when the speed networking had representation of nonprofit, government, tax, etc. Real opinions of the fields are something you can't get from a textbook...Overall, I remembered "why" I chose accounting in the first place. KyCPA renewed my passion."
