Activities & Events
Almost every general membership meeting features an invited guest (many times a Fredonia
alum) who speaks to students about their place of business, their position in it and
their personal experiences involving their day-to-day activities on the job. Students
hear in detail what’s expected of employees in various positions in public, private
and government accounting. Also, special guests speak on career development resources
available on campus and internship opportunities.
Business Etiquette Dinner
Every spring semester since 1991, the Accounting Society has held its Business Etiquette
Dinner.Its purpose is to teach attendees the appropriate behavior expected of professionals
while doing business in a social setting and to give them a low-stress environment
in which to practice what they have learned. Topics covered as a part of this educational
experience include appropriate behavior and discussion topics at the cocktail hour,
during dinner and at other social engagements. Some years an invited guest speaks
to students on topics, such as, cultural differences, fashion, wine selection, and
CPA Firm trips
Students have the option of visiting local and regional CPA Firms. These open-house
tours give students the opportunity to speak to experienced Certified Public Accountants
about their day to day life at the office.
