Scott Meckley and Gary LoDuca are West Coast Chapter members who are volunteers on the FICPA Financial Literacy Committee. They are seeking potential volunteers who are interested in getting involved for "Ask a CPA" for Fox News in March 2011 and/or "Financial Literacy for Teens" programs around Tampa. Possible venues for programs could be in local high schools, church groups or other forums with teenage audiences. The FICPA and AICPA have designed Financial Literacy presentations, curriculum and content that can be tailored to the audience to achieve the purpose of the program in a designated time frame.

This is a great opportunity to make a difference in our community without making a large time commitment. If you’re interested in learning more about this initiative, feel free to contact Scott: or Gary:
