Dear Members, Corporate Sponsors, and Friends,

Thank you to the membership for allowing me to serve a second term as your president for the 2014-2015 fiscal year. I have been involved with this organization for the past nine years, four as a student and five as a professional, and I am honored to continue to serve you in this capacity. My vision for the chapter is to see its continued growth and increased connectivity to the Orlando community.

The Greater Orlando Chapter has a very productive year planned with some staple annual events, such as Accounting Careers Awareness Program (ACAP) for high school students, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program for the Orlando community, and the Scholarship Awards Dinner for college students, and some new programming, such as CPE Webinars, CPA Bound Cram Sessions, and Quarterly General Meetings and Membership Appreciation Events. Some of our goals this year are to increase membership to 45 members and gain 4 new corporate sponsorship, provide value added and engaging development seminars, and to continue to connect and build our high school and college students by offering job shadowing and internship opportunities.  


Each year we plan and execute a variety of impactful events for professionals, students, and the community that without membership support and corporate sponsorship, would not have been possible. On behalf of the Executive Board and members, we invite you to take a look at our website, contact a board or committee member, join our chapter, and get involved! 


Thank you for your interest in NABA, Inc. - Greater Orlando Chapter and we look forward to greeting you at our next event!

Accounting Careers Awareness Program (ACAP)

The National Association of Black Accountants, Inc. is proud to present its 4th Annual Accounting and Careers Program (ACAP). ACAP was developed in 1980, when Mel Minnis and Ron Leveret became concerned about the small proportion of minorities entering the accounting field. After recognizing that preparation for a business career should begin during a student’s high school years, they decided to design a pilot program that would encourage minority students to take the college preparatory courses they would need to major in accounting and other fields of business.  This idea has now spread to more than 23 other National Association of Black Accountants, Inc. (NABA) chapters across the US.
Although there are several programs across the country, this is currently the only one in Florida!  Students from all over Florida are welcome to apply.  This is an overnight camp and students are required to stay on campus throughout the entire camp from July 12 – 17, 2015.  Students will stay on the beautiful campus of the University of Central Florida, be exposed to professionals in several areas of accounting and finance, work on a group presentation, hear from current college students, tour at least one off site business, have plenty to eat, and enjoy some fun. 
Application deadline is April 20th.  There is a mandatory orientation for all selected students on May 16, 2015 at UCF. 
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call me.  Please pass this application on to minority high school sophomores and juniors.
