What You Get From Volunteering
With the holidays approaching, many people may be looking for opportunities to give back. What you may not realize is how community service also could be helping your career. A recent survey showed that more than four in 10 professionals said they volunteer outside of work. They say volunteering improves their sense of well being and effectiveness at the office, expands their network, develops new skills, and enhances their company's visibility. Interested in an opportunity to volunteer where you can rub elbows with working CPA professionals? See the next story.

Give Back As a Tax Assistance Volunteer
MICPA student members are invited to volunteer with the Accounting Aid Society (AAS) to participate in tax assistance programs at Focus Hope and other sites throughout metropolitan Detroit. Tax volunteers help community members maximize tax incentives by capturing tax refunds and tax credits.
