A message from the TSCPA:
Dear TSCPA Member:
Since the economy has slipped into a deep recession, more Texans are searching for personal finance information as evidenced by the recent surge in traffic (nearly 32,000 visitors during the last three months) to TSCPA’s consumer Web site at ValueYourMoney.org. As TSCPA members, let’s leverage the power of social media to reach out to as many people as we can with the financial literacy message.
Please join me and participate in TSCPA’s Financial Literacy Social Media Outreach Day Thursday, April 30 so we can further spread the word about ValueYourMoney.org’s free information and resources and Texas CPAs’ role in financial literacy.
Whether you’re on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or you just have e-mail addresses, TSCPA would like you to send the following message or a similar one of your own to your friends, connections, followers, or distribution list this Thursday:
Looking to improve your personal finance I.Q. or know someone who is? Visit the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants’ consumer Web site at www.ValueYourMoney.org.
To measure our reach, please e-mail Jennifer Nimmo at email@example.com by 10 a.m. Friday, May 1 and let her know the number of people to whom you sent the message.
As CPAs, we know we help our clients and employers on a daily basis. Through ValueYourMoney.org and TSCPA’s other financial literacy resources, we now have an opportunity to showcase the profession’s public service platform to a broader audience.
I hope you’ll take a few minutes this Thursday and participate in the Financial Literacy Social Media Outreach Day. That’s what CPAs do best. We help people.
Steven R. Goodman, CPA
