Illinois CPA Society Named to Honor Roll

The Illinois CPA Society (ICPAS) has been named to the 2007 Associations Advance America Honor Roll, a national awards competition sponsored by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) & The Center for Association Leadership, Washington DC.

ICPAS received the award for its financial literacy outreach to college students via its “Swimming in Debt? 10 Strokes to Stay Afloat” program, designed to help students navigate the dangerous waters of credit card debt.

Now in its 17th year, the prestigious Associations Advance America (AAA) Awards program recognizes associations that propel forward – with innovative projects in education, skills training, standards setting, business and social innovation, knowledge creation, citizenship, and community service. Although association activities have a powerful impact on everyday life, they often go unnoticed by the general public.

“The Illinois CPA Society’s program truly embodies the spirit of the Associations Advance America campaign. It is an honor and an inspiration to showcase this activity as an example of the many contributions associations are making to advance American society,” remarked Associations Advance America Committee Chair Charles A. McGrath, CAE, managing partner, client services at Bostrom Corporation.
