Emerging Leaders Certificate Program


The CalCPA Emerging Leaders Certificate Program provides a forum to develop critical leadership skills with a network of your peers, while also gaining exposure to local leaders in the profession.

The program starts with a full-day conference focused on broad areas of leadership development and is followed by four 2-hour chapter-based workshops, each with a specific focus designed to develop you—the emerging leader.
