Celebrating Accounting Education in Wisconsin and Around the World - November 10, 2018

Friday, November 9, 2018

In celebration of International Accounting Day on November 10, 2018 check out "5 Wild Things Accountants Accomplished." Additionally the National Today website highlights a few significant historical years in accounting, potential activities to celebrate, and why we love international accounting day. Educators who have a connection to accounting education should make sure to save the date June 17-19, 2018 and plan to attend the Accounting Program for Building the Profession (APBP): Advanced Accounting Training in Chicago, Illinois. The Chicago training date and registration will be posted soon along with other national training events that are already listed on the American Institute of Certified Public Accounting website. To learn more about this national high school curriculum initiative visit the AICPA Accounting Program for Building the Profession (APBP) page.

Leading up to International Accounting Day, the Wisconsin Institute of Certified Public Accountants hosted the 17th Annual High School Educators Accounting Symposium. Check out videos from a few of our Wisconsin teachers who captured the essence of the value that the WICPA brings to the annual symposium event.
