Get Connected is a student event held once a year in Edmonton and Calgary. Students from all post-secondary institution are welcome to attend and can learn about different work experience routes, different career paths, and can connect with local CPAs and other accounting and business students.
The event features a panel discussion with five to six accountants from all legacy designations. To show the diversity of the profession, we ensure all panelists have experience from many areas of accounting, as well as varying paths to achieving their designations.
One powerful message that arises from this event each year is that even with varying career paths, all these professionals have one thing in common – they all have pride in the accounting profession. It’s the kind of pride that’s part of becoming a CPA.
Get Connected panels are honest, motivating, humorous, and thoughtful. Students in attendance are incredibly grateful for the panelists who share their insights, stories, and reasons for becoming designated accountants.
CPA Alberta is always looking for accounting professionals who want to share their stories with future CPAs.
