CPA Candidates

The Chapter has a number of supports for CPA Candidates such as:

Capstone 1 Mock Board Presentation

Chapter professionals  volunteer to form a mock board/boards to provide interested groups with an opportunity to:
•         practice presentation and Q&A skills, and
•         receive feedback on their presentations

in a setting that approximates the actual event. Be prepared to bring any equipment necessary to make your presentation or a suitable alternative to a live PowerPoint presentation (i.e. print outs of the slides, etc.).

Mock Board presentations will be held in July 2018. A survey will be sent out in May/June 2018 to identify those who are interested.  The personal information you share in the survey will be provided to the Chapter to arrange the presentations.

Someone from the Chapter will reach out during the module, so please designate a group member for the Chapter to communicate with regarding the mock board(s).

The Victoria/Southern Vancouver Island Chapter will use personal information gathered on this form so that a representative can make arrangements for this project.  The chapter is part of CPABC and is separate from CPAWSB.

Networking Opportunities

The Chapter hosts many networking events throughout the year to encourage camaraderie amongst CPA members, students and candidates.  The connections that you make at networking events can open doors for you in the the future. We encourage all future CPAs to attend your Chapter networking events. Please visit the Chapter Calendar to view all upcoming events in your area.
