NEW YORK, NY, June 26, 2012 – The New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA) combined forces with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and SCORE to offer small business counseling to more than 20 veterans on June 21.
The NYSSCPA’s Small Business Outreach Committee hosted the event at the Foundation for Accounting Education offices in New York City and provided more than three hours of direct counseling to the veterans who attended the session.
“Our committee is out there doing this on a regular basis,” said NYSSCPA Small Business Outreach Committee Chair Joshua Dubrow. “We are eager and happy to volunteer our time to help the veterans.”
The session was presented in conjunction with SCORE and AICPA’s Veterans Fast Track program. The program offers a combination of services to veterans, including scholarships and free software in addition to SCORE’s mentoring program.
In an effort to help veterans and their families develop sound and profitable business techniques that would create long-term economic opportunities, they learned about bookkeeping, taxes, personal financial planning and retirement plans.
The NYSSCPA Small Business Outreach Committee was formed in 1996 to connect CPAs with aspiring and existing business owners in order to provide education about starting and running a business in New York.
