Dozier will join an exclusive group of rising stars in the accounting profession to learn strategic planning techniques and develop personal success skills.  Leadership Academy participants, all under age 36, will discuss pressing issues facing CPAs and the accounting profession with some of the profession’s most influential leaders. 

“The AICPA’s Leadership Academy annually selects promising young CPAs and gives them the tools they need to continue to make an impact in the accounting profession,” said AICPA Chairman Bill Balhoff.  “As these CPAs continue to develop their careers, both the connections they make and the training they receive at the Leadership Academy will help guide them along the way.”

The AICPA selected the 38 attendees of the Leadership Academy from more than 100 candidates recommended by their employers, state CPA societies or both.  Candidates submitted resumes which included work history, licensure information, professional volunteer activities, community service, and awards and honors.
