The CPABC Kamloops/Cariboo Chapter, and legacy accounting educational foundations, have been long term supporters of Thompson Rivers University (TRU).
The chapter and the CPA Education Foundation currently provide four annual scholarships to accounting students in the TRU School of Business and Economics.
Accounting faculty also receive invitations to attend the CPAEF’s biennial Accounting Educators Symposium, an annual Academic PD Passport which entitles academic members to two complimentary training days through CPABC’s extensive PD program, and speaker series grants to support faculty development.
The profession has been recognized by the TRU Foundation as a “Donor Leader” for its support and is named on a donor wall located on TRU’s Kamloops campus.
Alan Shaver, president and vice chancellor of TRU said, “your financial support helps students achieve their academic goals and pursue their professional ambitions. Private donations help those in need and celebrate our brightest stars.”
Mark Moran CPA CA, chapter chair, responded by saying, “the chapter and local CPAs have enjoyed a long history of supporting TRU students and faculty. Your success is inspiring to others.”
Local CPABC members are proud to continue their long standing support of TRU students and faculty.
