Louisiana CPAs Hang It Up for Charity
The Society of Louisiana Certified Public Accountants (LCPA) has produced a 12-month, full-color wall calendar featuring 12 dedicated CPAs who share their time and talents to make their communities better, safer places to live.
The 2005 All on Account of Service CPA Calendar promotes the volunteer work CPAs do every day," explains Donna Andries, Chair of the LCPA's Communications and Public Relations Committee. "When it comes to public service, we have so many generous members giving back to their communities, and we're proud to have this opportunity to give them, and their volunteer organizations, some much-deserved attention."
A joint project of the LCPA and the American Institute of CPAs, the 2005 All on Account of Service CPA Calendar includes tax filing deadlines and tips for improving the American public's financial literacy. "CPAs across the nation are committed to enhancing the quality of life within their communities," says Andries. "This project is a unique way for the CPA profession to not only support important community-service programs, but also to provide some basic knowledge to help individuals of all ages achieve financial well-being."
Proceeds from the sales will benefit the organizations featured in the calendar, in addition to the LCPA's Education Foundation which provides scholarships to accounting students in Louisiana.
The organizations featured in the calendar are: Accounting Careers Exploration Program, Boy Scouts of America - Troop 6 in Alexandria, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Northeast Louisiana, Dress for Success New Orleans, Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity - New Orleans, Junior League of Baton Rouge, Lake Charles Symphony, Special Olympics of Louisiana, St. Tammany Project Christmas, United Way New Orleans - Success By Six, and Young Eagles Program.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
