In the midst of a snowy winter’s day–January 31st 2017, the Zicklin Forensic Accounting Association held its semi-annual General Interest Meeting for the Spring 2017 semester. The intimate gathering brought hopeful students who were eager to learn more about ZFAA and the forensic accounting field.
The meeting commenced with a game that allowed all the attendees–newcomers and seasoned members of the association, better familiarize themselves and learn fun and interesting facts about one another. The room was filled with a diverse set of people, each with their own unique skillsets and backgrounds. Some individuals had the experience and privilege of riding elephants and visiting different continents. Others had the ability to speak multiple languages, play instruments, and trapeze! The blue yarn that passed through every individual’s hands demonstrates the influence of communication and the connection and meaningful experiences ZFAA hoped to provide every member.
The ice breaker was followed by a presentation that revealed to new students the typical day of a forensic accountant; the opportunities in investigative auditing, as well as the open positions in ZFAA–which to be filled in the upcoming election. Those who attended were then able to mingle with the board members and have their additional questions answered.
The Zicklin Forensic Accounting Association looks forward to the upcoming semester and the events and opportunities it can provide the Baruch community!
