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 regional conference focused on broad areas of leadership development and is followed by full-day chapter-based workshop, designed to develop you—the emerging leader.
