The symposium will be held on Thursday, Dec. 2, 2010 through Friday, Dec. 3, 2010 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Washington, D.C. The symposium is open to all professionals with a desire, and in a position, to influence change within their organization and across the accounting profession.
The symposium will begin with a presentation from a research study sponsored by CAE which will serve as the basis for the panel discussion. Group discussions, solutions and execution plans will revolve around four major topics: pre-college efforts, college years, retention and upward mobility. Symposium participants will gain and increase their knowledge of the most effective tools and skills required to address these critical challenges. The objective is to establish clear actions and an accountability model so that the innovative practices and solutions discussed can continue to be prioritized and implemented subsequent to this unique event.
