To spotlight the value CPAs offer the Commonwealth’s citizens and commerce, Gov. Bob McDonnell signed a proclamation (PDF) recognizing September 19–25, 2010, as “Virginia Certified Public Accountants Week.” That's this week!
The VSCPA introduced a similar proclamation as part of its Centennial anniversary in 2009 and initiated the proclamation again this year to continue highlighting CPAs’ contributions.
The proclamation notes that CPAs in Virginia draw upon their unique knowledge and experiences to provide sound, reliable financial counsel to protect and promote the growth of business, the soundness of government operations, the excellence of higher education and the confidence of investors in the Commonwealth and throughout the United States.
To celebrate Virginia Certified Public Accountants Week, the VSCPA is hosting several free public service events, including the CPA Day of Service, which will unite hundreds of volunteers in giving back this Friday.
Check out www.vscpa.com/CPAWeek for more information on how you can get involved and celebrate this week.
Thanks for all that you do, CPAs. Enjoy some much-deserved recognition!
