New Orleans (Oct. 23, 2003) -- It probably won't outsell offerings by supermodels and adorable kittens, but the Society of Louisiana CPAs has come up with a 2004 calendar to "promote CPAs as dynamic and diverse individuals."

The "All on Account of Fun" calendar, which will raise funds for the LCPA's Scholarship Foundation, includes pictures and bios of a wide swath of CPAs, including a hydroplane champion, a builder of experimental airplanes and a CPA with a pet tarantula named "Pookie."

"We are definitely not the full, humorless bean counters so many stereotypes and office jokes have made us out to be," said CPA Tommie Vassel, past chair of the LCPA's communications committee (and also the body-building Mr. February).

Aside from the profiles of Louisiana CPAs each month, the calendar also includes important tax filing dates and other dates relevant to businesses and the accounting profession.

To order a $10 calendar, call the LCPA at 800-288-5272.
