CPA Day of Service

The Society of Louisiana CPAs will host our first statewide CPA Day of Service on Friday, September 28. This single, yet powerful, day will be a fun way to interact with fellow CPAs while making a lasting impact. You will have the opportunity to engage with the community you serve on a daily basis, unite with other members of the CPA profession, and even meet new faces along the way.



How’s the CPA Day of Service work?

We want the CPA Day of Service (DOS) to be rewarding for those serving and the organizations being served. Volunteer for a community organization of your choice. Choose to participate as an individual or group.

Your local LCPA Chapter can be a good start in identifying service opportunities near you. Visit your chapter's dedicated DOS page and use the chapter event's Register button to sign up as an individual or group. Some service projects may be at capacity, but don't let that stop you from finding another way to serve your community on September 28th.

Have a project of your own? Simply complete an individual or group volunteer form:

 


What if I can only volunteer for an hour or two?

You can commit to a whole day of volunteering, or just a few hours. We understand the time demands of work, so select the project that best fits your passion and your schedule.


6 Easy Steps to Participate in the CPA Day of Service


  1. Choose a Cause
  2. You can choose an organization you may already be involved with or check with your local LCPA Chapter for suggestions, You could even reach out to area schools, libraries, and community organizations to learn how you can lend a hand with a much-needed project.

    Choose a cause that’s important to you or your group. Sometimes it’s simply asking an organization in your area, “How can I be of help?”

  3. Contact the Charity Organization
  4. Contact your chosen charity or organization to find out what volunteer opportunities they have on September 28. Then start to plan your event. Keep in mind some charities/organizations have a maximum capacity for the amount of volunteers they are able to hold for one specific event. Please make sure to find out the best way you can help them specifically.

  5. Register by Wednesday, September 19
  6. Please officially register as an individual or group September 19. This will help us keep track of activities and contacts, and alert the media of participating groups. If you have any questions about registration, please contact Ann Lupo, 504.904.1125. Keep in mind that some may require a separate registration in addition to LCPA DOS.

  7. Get your CPA Day of Service T-Shirt While Supplies Last
  8. As a token of participation, you will receive a free t-shirt when you register for a CPA Day of Service volunteer opportunity. As quantities are limited, we ask you to only request a t-shirt if you expect to participate in the CPA Day of Service or if your group doesn’t plan to make your own custom shirt. We will fulfill t-shirt requests while supplies last and will do our best to accommodate size requests. If your group wants to create its own custom shirt, we can send you the CPA Day of Service logo. TIP: Sizes tend to run small so we suggest ordering up a size.

  9. Confirm Your Event
  10. Confirm your event with the charity and make sure everything is in place. As your event is confirmed, please let us know what your plans are for that day.
