The ALPFA Tampa Bay Chapter was formed in 2004 and since its inception, the Chapter has provided support to not only the region’s professional members but also to four student chapters – University of South Florida, Florida State University, University of Florida and most recently, the University of Tampa.
ALPFA Tampa Bay continually seeks to enrich the professional development of our Bay area professionals by providing them with access to CPE sessions which have focused on professional development as well as Accounting and Financial topics. We also provide opportunities to network with professionals within the Bay area as well as supporting our community through various volunteering events such as Junior Achievement.
For our students, the Tampa Bay Chapter jointly coordinates events with the student chapters to provide our ALPFA students with resources to develop their interviewing skills, resume building skills as well as developing business etiquette. Our student chapters have also been welcomed to all professional chapter CPE sessions where they have the opportunity to not only partake in professional skills development but to meet and network with the Tampa Bay area professionals in attendance.
Through these efforts the chapter has been recognized as Regional Chapter of the Year in 2010. Similarly, our student chapters have achieved similar recognition for Regional Student Chapter of the Year with UF winning the award in 2010 and USF in 2011.
