VSU Involvement

Each year the Firm is involved with various events hosted by or for the VSU Accounting and Finance Department.  We have a wonderful relationship with both the professors and students of the Harley Langdale, Jr. College of Business Administration, and  we look forward to some exciting events planned for the upcoming year.  In addition to the events listed below, our CPAs and Partners speak at Beta Alpha Psi meetings and even teach a class or two throughout the year, so look for us on campus!

H&G Open House

Held annually in the fall since 2008, this event is hosted by Henderson & Godbee, LLP for active student members of Beta Alpha Psi.  Students are invited to the Firm to hear about our intern program, network with the accounting staff and learn more about public accounting.  This event has grown to be an exciting and fun evening enjoyed by staff and students alike.

The 2011 H&G Open House is scheduled for September 6, 2011 from 5:00-6:30 PM.  For more information contact Dr. Raymond Elson, Beta Alpha Psi advisor. View past event photos!

Meet the Firms

Henderson & Godbee, LLP has been a participant at the Accounting Department’s “Meet the Firms” event since 2009.  This event is an excellent way for accounting students interested in obtaining a tax season internship to hand deliver their resumes and find out more about our intern opportunities.

The 2012 Meet the Firms will be held on September 19, 2012 from 2:00-4:00 PM at the University Center.  Bring your resume and look for the H&G table!

Georgia Society of CPAs – Valdosta Chapter Annual Education Night

The Firm has been an integral part of this annual Chapter event since its inception.  Each fall the Valdosta Chapter of the GSCPA provides scholarships to accounting students.  The scholarships are awarded at the November meeting, and accounting professors are in attendance to talk about the current state of the Business School and Accounting Department.  Like all other GSCPA meetings, this one is open free of charge to VSU accounting students.

This year’s Educators’ Night will be held on November 15, 2012 at VSU. For more information about the GSCPA Valdosta Chapter Scholarship contact Amanda Shapard at H&G: [email protected] or Dr. Raymond Elson at VSU: [email protected].

Honors Luncheon

Each spring the Accounting and Finance department hold an Honors Luncheon to recognize outstanding Accounting Principles students from the previous year.  Additionally, accounting firm-sponsored scholarships are awarded.  Henderson & Godbee, LLP has an annual $1,000 scholarship given to an accounting student chosen by accounting professors.

At the Spring 2012 luncheon, previous H&G intern Kelly Davis was awarded the H&G scholarship.
