The Illinois CPA Society will be hosting the Young Professionals Leadership Conference in Chicago May 31.

The half-day conference, designed to encourage and educate young CPAs, will include interactive sessions covering new management expectations after a promotion, work-life balance and encountering ethical issues.

The event will kick off at the Metropolitan Club with a keynote presentation, “Show Your Ink,” given by Todd Dewett, leadership expert, TVA Inc. president and professor of management at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

“The Young Professionals Leadership Conference is a unique and exceptional opportunity. No other event is so focused on providing young CPAs with core leadership values as well as the tools to be fearless, gain new skills, build a professional network and take charge of their careers,” said Illinois CPA Society interim CEO Todd Shapiro in a statement. "The Society is proud to offer programming, like this event, that enhances the leadership skills of the next generation of accounting professionals."
