I can’t make it

I would like  to offer  a sincere and heartfelt Thank you and Shout Out to our Corporate Sponsors for helping us achieve our mission to help enable students in the accounting and finance related fields to achieve their full personal, professional and economic potential and to contribute to the future development of their professions. Without our wonderful Corporate Sponsor we would not be able to offer this event.

I would also like to thank the Student Outreach Committee members who have helped in organizing this event.  It really takes a team to put together the Student Outreach Event each year.  Without each person’s contribution from those on the board to those serving on the committee we wouldn’t be able to present this event to the local college students and future members of the accounting and finance profession and maybe one day a proud member of  AFWA.

I look forward to hearing our panel of  branding experts and look forward to seeing everyone at the April event.
