Support community-based organizations engaged in financial literacy.
Connect accounting professionals with non-profits in need of board members and volunteers with financial expertise.
Here are examples of how NCACPA supports its community:
- In 2021, NCACPA successfully lobbied the General Assembly to appropriate more than $1 million to fund professional development for financial literacy instructors.
- NCACPA led the effort in 2019 to pass a law mandating instruction in Economics and Personal Finance (EPF) for high school students.
- We have been working for some time with the North Carolina Council on Economic Education (NCCEE) to promote financial literacy in public high school classrooms across the state.
- NCACPA members continue to volunteer as guest lecturers and panelists for financial literacy classes, as judges for academic competitions focused on economics and personal finance, and as members of regional advisory boards for NCCEE.
