The Leaders’ Institute, sponsored by Baker Tilly and the VSCPA Educational Foundation, is seeking nominations for its 2011 program. Students can nominate themselves and educators can nominate students. Nominations are due Friday, March 18.
The program allows students to enjoy access to potential employers and mentoring and networking opportunities. This year’s program is scheduled for June 24–26 at the Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center.
“The Leaders’ Institute provides a valuable experience for accounting students,” Dr. Ed Coffman, professor and chair of the accounting department at Virginia Commonwealth University, said. “On campus, students that have attended comment on how they benefited from such activities as networking, resume writing, team building and getting to know the representatives from the various firms. The activities of the Institute are most helpful in assisting students in making the transition from the academic to the professional practice of accounting. For this, we in the academic community are most appreciative.”
Nomination forms are available at the Leaders’ Institute website.
