Making Community Connections

Posted on July 24, 2015 · Posted in CSEA Society News

Raising public awareness about the Enrolled Agent designation is a fundamental part of CSEA’s Strategic Plan, so that Enrolled Agents are recognized by the public as America’s Tax Experts. Young people are a particularly important demographic for CSEA’s pubic information and awareness efforts, as they are just deciding on a career or entering the workforce. Because they regularly share interests and experiences with one another via social media, outreach to young people is tremendously valuable. However, in many cases young people do not have easy access to information about the Enrolled Agent career.

In an effort to reach this demographic, San Gabriel Valley Chapter Member Franklin Ruedel, EA met and spoke with attendees at the Temple City Chamber of Commerce Youth Career Fair. Mr. Ruedel explained about the benefits of becoming an Enrolled Agent and how to get started in the profession. The event, which was held on May 30, 2015 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., targeted young people from 14 to 22 years of age, and was also open to the general public. CSEA thanks Mr. Ruedel for volunteering his valuable time to take part in this event.
