FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington, DC – The National Society of Black Certified Public Accountants, Inc. (NSBCPA) is launching a first of its kind Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Exam Bootcamp Program for Black Accounting Students.

The National Society of Black CPAs is laser focused on increasing the number Black CPAs. “We developed our own CPA Exam Review that encompasses study methods to enhance the skills of Black students by providing professors from our community.” said Felicia Farrar, Vice Chair NSBCPA.

“One of the reasons we thought it was important to start this organization is because Blacks currently make up less than 1% of CPA’s in America” said Shannon Nash, Chair NSBCPA. “In 2021 we embark upon the 100th Anniversary of the first Black CPA, John Cromwell; if not now then when will we increase the number of Black CPAs.”

This one of a kind virtual program also includes:

1.Pre-recorded Black CPA/professor accounting sessions

Placement Assessment

2. Placement Assessment

3. Weekly CPA exam review sessions lead by Black CPAs

4. Weekly accountability study sessions

5. Application and test fee support

6.CPA mentor assigned to each student

The NSBCPA’s program has also garnered support from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Foundation. Funding provided by the AICPA Foundation will be used towards the accounting professors working with CPA Exam candidates and to help Exam candidates defray testing costs.

Felicia adds “We believe by teaching the history of Black CPAs and connecting our community with Black CPAs we can change the trajectory of the lack of diversity in the CPA profession.”

NSBCPA welcomes partnership with companies struggling to meet diversity goals and organizations that have insights on best diversity practices that can be replicated. NSBCPA’s conference, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the first Black CPA is June 3-5, 2021 in Washington, DC. It’s an excellent opportunity for hiring managers to meet with diverse accounting talent. Please visit www.nsbcpa.org.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Nov 25, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Nov 25, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Nov 25, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Nov 25, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
