Eighteen certified public accountants from around the state of Kansas have been selected to participate in the fourth 20 up to 40 Leadership Program offered by the Kansas Society of Certified Public Accountants.
The program was created to help members of the KSCPA up to the age of 40 develop their leadership style by examining major leadership philosophies. It is designed to help motivate leaders to apply the skills they have learned to their professional and personal lives. Additionally, it provides young professionals with the opportunity to network, socialize, and learn from fellow colleagues and facilitators as well as bring vision, ideas and strategies to the KSCPA. These young professionals are on the road to becoming a new generation of leaders.
The 2012 program consists of five sessions over the course of the entire year. It begins in January with an emphasis on legislative awareness and understanding the Kansas Society of Certified Public Accountants. The participants will visit the Board of Accountancy, State House, Department of Revenue, Senate, and, following a session with Robert Schuster, KSCPA chair, will host the 4th Annual KSCPA Legislative Reception the offices of the KSCPA. The program ends in November with participation in the leadership summit at the KSCPAs 80th Annual Meeting in Overland Park.
Local participant this year includes Amber L. Littler, Adaams Brown Beran & Ball, Chtd. in Great Bend.
