Bringing the EA Profession to U.S. Colleges
The Educating America program was introduced during a May 2014 NAEA Affiliate Presidents Exchange meeting as a 10-year initiative leading to the implementation of a standard taxation career program in colleges across the US. Its primary goals are to enhance the recognition of enrolled agents and educate students and professors about the excellent career opportunities available for enrolled agents. Tremendous progress over the years has allowed us to provide internships and career paths, increase overall membership and introduce a national license to a younger generation.
Today Educating America is NAEA’s primary vehicle for meeting potential new EAs, training them, and mentoring them along the path to their credential and career. The program provides opportunities to
- attend campus job fairs,
- actively recruit new EAs,
- hire aspiring EAs as interns, and
Carried forward by a task force of NAEA members, an NAEA staff liaison, and our professional partner Gleim Exam Prep along with help from NAEA state affiliates, new (non-credit) license and academic certificate programs have developed technical colleges, community colleges and four-year universities throughout the US.
