As always, please feel free to swing by at any point during the day to say hello.

Spring Opportunities
1.  Please Join Becker Account Manager, Katie Wilson, to get your questions answered about the CPA Exam!

Navigating state requirements, application process and timeline planning can be confusing and often times frustrating. After talking with a number of students this spring, I have decided to hold a few webinars to walk students through that process, help you create your study plan and get your questions answered!

With finals just around the corner, I realize scheduling may be difficult. Because of that I have decided to hold 4, 60 minute webinars, so you can choose a time that works best for you.

Webinars will be held Tuesday May 23rd at 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM
And Wednesday May 24th at 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM

If you are interested in attending this workshop, please RSVP using the link below and you will receive a meeting invite with log-in directions Monday May 22nd. If none of these times work for you, there is a spot on the RSVP to request a different time, and I will do my best to accommodate student requests.
