Accounting Society

Activities & Events


Speaker Meetings

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 lunch interviews.

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.

Educational Field Trip

The Accounting Society regularly take educational field trips to provide off-campus experiences for students.  Past trips have included: Toronto Stock Exchange, Cleveland Federal Reserve Bank, Toronto Marlies AHL team and the Corning Museum of Glass.

Social Field Trip

On the lighter side, the Accounting Society also enjoys fun field trips.  Past trips have included: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Buffalo Bisons baseball game, Buffalo Sabres hockey game, the Buffalo Zoo and the Niagara Falls Aquarium.
