The CPT Promotes Ethical Leadership Through Partnerships

Bookmark and Share

The NASBA Center for the Public Trust (CPT) has established great relationships with various organizations to further the importance of ethical decision making. The best examples of this would be the partnerships with the Kentucky Society of Certified Public Accountants (KyCPA) and the Alabama Association of School Business Officials (AASBO). These partnerships bring the mission of the CPT and the power of the RAISE Model for Ethical Decision Making to hundreds of professionals each year.

Every other year, the CPT travels the commonwealth of Kentucky with KyCPA to provide applied learning on ethics for more than 400 accounting practitioners. Additionally, the CPT speaks at other conferences and events hosted by KyCPA, including its Educators Conference that brings together over 100 accounting educators from across the state.

The CPT also partners with the AASBO to speak at their various conferences. These events place members of the CPT in front of hundreds of school business management officials,who are responsible for every financial and operational facet of K-12 public school across the state of Alabama.

The CPT’s partnerships with KyCPA and AASBO are highlights of how the mission of the CPT – to develop, empower and promote ethical leaders – continues to be realized.
