Accounting Students of the Fraser Valley (ASFV) was established in November 2008 by two students of UFV, Jesse Chong and Cecilia Shen. ASFV is a community-based organization which holds close ties with the Business Administration Student Association and the Fraser Valley accounting community.
We want ASFV to be a resource and community where professional accountants, students, and alumni are able to share and gain knowledge about their respective accounting studies and professional practice.
The club is an undergraduate student body built to assist students seeking to achieve success in their career. As well, the club makes every effort to provide a platform for accounting majors to become actively involved in the Accounting Community
To help provide accounting students in the Fraser Valley the most engaging learning experience and help students achieve success in their careers. We intend on accomplishing this by creating a network through which we provide students with opportunities to connect with their peers, gain experience, and network with accounting professionals in fun social settings.
Who can Join?
Any current/past/future accounting students or professionals in the Fraser Valley are welcome to join. No fees are required and no time commitments are expected from general members. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and/or if you wish to become a member.
The ASFV is about 3 things:
1. ) Assisting students with their studies. There’s a lot to know about the accounting option. What courses are required? What’s important to know about each course? Where can I find additional study resources? Where do I put these extraordinary items? ASFV aims to be an indispensable tool and school grapevine for all accounting students looking for guidance in their studies.
2.) Providing students with opportunities to increase their employability skills. College shouldn’t be all about studying. In order to position yourself to meet the demands of the job market, you’ll need the right combination of connections, skills, and experience to beat the mean. ASFV provides different opportunities to learn about the 4 designations (CGA, CMA, CA, & CPA). We also provide different networking events for you meet people in the industry.
3.) Helping accounting professionals and students have fun; because some times students need to take a break from the debits and credits. We want students to get the most out of their college experience and know that not all accountants are those cliched monotonous bean counters seen on TV. We’ll be hosting a variety of social outings to give students and professionals a chance to meet peers and have a little fun.
