The Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants – De La Salle University Chapter (JPIA – DLSU) will be holding EXCEED2021, the 10th edition of its annual accounting convention for business leaders this April 17 and 24.
The yearly event brings together the brightest and most ambitious business students from several universities around the country, with this year’s theme being “Reshaping Business Dynamics, Catalyzing Post-Pandemic Nation-Building”.
In the past, the EXCEED Accounting Convention has been held on DLSU grounds. However, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be held entirely via Zoom and YouTube. An online or virtual setup opens the door to more university students from other regions of the country who would not usually be able to attend the event.
“For the past 65 years, JPIA – DLSU continues to uphold its core values in hopes of serving the best interests of its stakeholders,” says Rychel Namol, the president of JPIA – DLSU. “In line with this, the organization aims to assist future CPAs by equipping them with the necessary skills as they enter the business world.”
“The Accounting Convention aims to broaden its participants’ knowledge about the fields of accounting and business, how the pandemic affected them, and how it will form part of the nation’s future,” continued Namol.
The two-day event will be made up of three parts, namely, the Plenary, the Simultaneous Classes, and the Symposium.
The Plenary & Simultaneous Classes are scheduled to take place on April 17, 2021, from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The Plenary session’s panelists will include chairpersons and partners from the top Philippine accounting firms who will share their experiences and insights on the theme provided. Afterward, participants will have the chance to attend one of the various simultaneous classes covering specialized topics presented by experts.
The Symposium to be held on April 24, 2021, from 12:30 PM to 7:30 PM will highlight the roles of business students across the different professional fields, to be presented by distinguished speakers renowned in their respective career fields.
