The club will offer professional mentorship and networking services, information about certifications available in the field and guest speakers from various accounting specialty fields.
The Accounting Club has a total of 18 members and counting.

Other officers include: Joelle Day, president-elect; Caitlin McCarthy, secretary; Aazim Lalini, director of membership; Bryeanna Jamison, director of communications; and Saazid Lalani, director of education.
Organizers hope to have speakers from various companies visit the campus to address club members on their personal experiences in the industry and offer helpful advice. Plans for the fall semester will be sketched out over the summer term.
