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 gaining exposure to leaders in the profession.

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

During this two-day program you’ll delve into pertinent leadership development areas needed to accelerate and elevate your career, including personal leadership fundamentals, navigating the multi-generational workforce, effective decision-making and more.

Through open, honest and collaborative communication, a CalCPA member mentor will guide discussion and provide insight and tips during the chapter-based follow-up session. Plus, with workshop sizes ranging from 10 to 20 CalCPA members, you have the unique opportunity to share and discuss experiences in an intimate and trusting setting.
