The Controllers Executive RoundTable enhances the professional development of controllers of major private and public companies. This regional network of highly motivated professionals offers engaging and relevant quarterly forums and provides opportunities to connect with peers, network with member companies and learn critical and emerging information.
CERT membership is by invitation only and is limited to controllers and equivalent professionals of major companies with significant operations in Virginia. The annual fee is $2,200. Members enjoy access to VCU School of Business resources, including access to the VCU libraries and databases, assistance in identifying articles and other references of interest, and priority treatment in identification of outstanding prospective graduates, interns and part-time employees.
Each quarterly meeting is facilitated by an industry expert, with time built in for group discussion. Members can bring up to two guests and are eligible to receive four hours of continuing professional education credit per meeting.
CERT members have endowed two scholarships that are awarded to two outstanding accounting majors each year.
