CPA Western School of Business: Capstone 1 Panelists
The CPA Western School of Business is looking for volunteers in Vancouver to view and provide feedback on the Capstone 1 presentations between July 6 and 9, 2019.
Each presentation will be reviewed by a panel of four volunteers from the professional accounting community. In advance of the presentations, panelists will be provided with preparatory resources, including an executive summary of the suggested case solution, as well as an opportunity to attend a training webinar.
Each day will run from approximately 7:30am to 4:30pm local time. Breakfast and lunch will be provided during the presentation days.
There is no monetary compensation offered for the service of volunteer panelists; however, these volunteer hours may be eligible towards annual CPD hours. You can claim CPD credits to the extent that you have achieved learning that develops and maintains your professional competence, to enable you to continue to perform your professional role. You can claim verifiable CPD credits to the extent that the learning can be verified objectively. The amount of credit will vary from one volunteer to another, as it will depend upon a number of factors such as: the experience level of the volunteer, the issues addressed in the presentations and feedback, and the relevance to the volunteer’s professional role. Members should document the basis for the extent of CPD claimed.
If you are interested in volunteering for one or more days, please contact the School at firstname.lastname@example.org. Members who are volunteering to assist in the mock board presentations as organized by local chapters are not eligible to also be official panelists.
