Accounting Professor Arranges Agreement with CalCPA
National University has signed a memorandum of agreement with the California Society of CPAs (CalCPA) and the CalCPA Education Foundation to collaborate on opportunities and activities that are mutually beneficial to CalCPA members and National University students and faculty.
The agreement was spearheaded by Dr. Joyce Ellis, CPA, Associate Professor in the School of Business and Management and Lead Faculty for Auditing. It provides opportunities for CalCPA members to serve as volunteer guest speakers, panelists and subject matter experts in National University accounting classes statewide.
Additionally, the agreement offers free CalCPA membership to accounting students and full-time faculty members at National and calls for designated CalCPA contacts for specific collaborative activities and invites the Society to host meetings at National University campuses statewide. As members of CalCPA, National University students will now receive significant discounts on CPA review courses essential to their success in CPA licensure.
Professor Ellis was also instrumental in arranging for three National University accounting students to accompany CalCPA recently on its annual trip to Sacramento. The Society paid all expenses for the students, as its various chapters gathered in the state capitol to spend the day with legislators.
CalCPA is comprised of 14 chapters throughout California. Its mission is to increase the value and promote the integrity of the CPA profession, contribute to the success of its members, and strengthen client, employer, public and government trust in CalCPA.
The mission of the CalCPA Education Foundation is to deliver quality education and build knowledge to foster excellence and advance individuals and the CPA profession through innovation and partnership. To learn more about the Society and its Education Foundation, click here.
