FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington, DC – The National Society of Black Certified Public Accountants, Inc. (NSBCPA) is launching a first of its kind Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Exam Bootcamp Program for Black Accounting Students.

The National Society of Black CPAs is laser focused on increasing the number Black CPAs. “We developed our own CPA Exam Review that encompasses study methods to enhance the skills of Black students by providing professors from our community.” said Felicia Farrar, Vice Chair NSBCPA.

“One of the reasons we thought it was important to start this organization is because Blacks currently make up less than 1% of CPA’s in America” said Shannon Nash, Chair NSBCPA. “In 2021 we embark upon the 100th Anniversary of the first Black CPA, John Cromwell; if not now then when will we increase the number of Black CPAs.”

This one of a kind virtual program also includes:

1.Pre-recorded Black CPA/professor accounting sessions

Placement Assessment

2. Placement Assessment

3. Weekly CPA exam review sessions lead by Black CPAs

4. Weekly accountability study sessions

5. Application and test fee support

6.CPA mentor assigned to each student

The NSBCPA’s program has also garnered support from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Foundation. Funding provided by the AICPA Foundation will be used towards the accounting professors working with CPA Exam candidates and to help Exam candidates defray testing costs.

Felicia adds “We believe by teaching the history of Black CPAs and connecting our community with Black CPAs we can change the trajectory of the lack of diversity in the CPA profession.”

NSBCPA welcomes partnership with companies struggling to meet diversity goals and organizations that have insights on best diversity practices that can be replicated. NSBCPA’s conference, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the first Black CPA is June 3-5, 2021 in Washington, DC. It’s an excellent opportunity for hiring managers to meet with diverse accounting talent. Please visit www.nsbcpa.org.

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

Nov 24, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction.

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Nov 24, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs.

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Nov 24, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
