19th Annual Accounting Etiquette Dinner

On Monday, March 4, 2013 The Shippensburg University Accounting Club along with the university chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) hosted their 19th Annual Etiquette Dinner. The dinner featured guest speakers Lynne and John Breil of The Professional Edge. The objective of the dinner is to help students, faculty, and staff gain an understanding of how to properly dine at a job interview or in other professional settings. The Breils presented the proper way to dine from using the overwhelming arsenal of silverware that can accompany a professional dinner, all the way through to where your napkin should be placed when the meal is concluded. Additional highlights from the dinner include an opportunity to eat foods that ordinarily should not be ordered in a professional setting, such as French onion soup or spaghetti, as well as an opportunity for students test their skills with chopsticks and gain an understanding of how a dining experience may be different when traveling abroad.

Along with an opportunity to learn professional dinning etiquette the dinner presented an excellent chance for students to network as multiple public accounting firms were in attendance. Special thanks are necessary for the following firms:
