The Florida Institute of CPAs is dedicated to supporting high-school and college educators of Florida who are in a key position to identify and develop the CPAs of tomorrow!
We have a number of resources designed for educators to promote accounting careers and education as well as the CPA designation in the classroom. We also offer valuable opportunities for students, like our Minority Summer Residency Program (MSRP) and the Accounting Development Program (ADP)…and opportunities like the Accounting Forum for Teachers (AFT) designed for business educators.
We appreciate the opportunity to support you! For more information, you may contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Accounting for Success Program
Our Accounting for Success program supports educators with the assignment of a High School Speaker (HSS) to each of most of the high-schools in Florida. These are individuals who are FICPA members (Certified Public Accountants) who have volunteered to be available to speak about accounting careers, financial literacy or accounting concepts to your class, or at a job-fair or career-day event. See the HSS List to find out who is assigned to your school, then access their contact information from the FICPA Speakers Directory.
The FICPA has several summer programs for high school and college students who are interested in exploring the accounting profession. See each individual program for information, student nomination form and deadlines.
