Trends in accounting profession focus of program

(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania)- Moravian College’s Division of Continuing and Graduate Studies will hold a lecture titled, "Next Generation Accountant: From Statistician to Strategist," on June 7, 6:00 p.m., Dana Lecture Hall, Collier Hall of Science. Peter Chimera, Branch Manager for Accountemps, will provide a look into the trends affecting the future of the accounting profession.

The field of accounting is experiencing sweeping changes as it transforms into a "knowledge services" profession. The next generation of accountants will be visionary strategists with advanced technical abilities; they will have to know not just debits and credits, but also bits, bytes and the intricacies of e-commerce. These are some of the findings of Robert Half International’s Next Generation Accounting campaign, the result of comprehensive research in collaboration with professional associations and experts in accounting and finance.

Robert Half International, the parent company of Accountemps, is listed on the national registry of CPE sponsors, maintained by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA). Moravian College, Division of Continuing and Graduate Studies and Accountemps are providing this lecture free of charge. This presentation carries CPE credit.
