Congratulations to Matthew Wren, recipient of the Alan Salmon Bursary
We are pleased to share the inaugural recipient of the Alan Salmon Bursary Program through CPB Canada. Earlier this year, CPB Canada partnered with Conestoga College to administer this Bursary program.
As of last week, we would like to formally congratulate Matthew Wren on being awarded the Alan Salmon Bursary this term. As a successful recipient, Matthew will receive $1,250 to further his academic and professional pursuits.
Matthew is also a student member with CPB Canada and has shared the following words.
“There are many goals I have while I continue my academic studies and afterwards that I want to achieve. Within the Bookkeeping field, I hope to continue my involvement with the Certified Professional Bookkeepers of Canada organization and achieve my CPB certification.
Professionally, I want to have an established career, gain experience with a well-known company, and possibly/eventually open my own Bookkeeping business. As a father and husband, I am committed to providing for my family and giving them the life that they deserve - by excelling in Bookkeeping; I will be able to do so.
I would like to thank Conestoga College and CPB Canada for selecting me as the Bursary recipient. I feel fortunate to be working full-time in the field as a Bookkeeper already and have achieved my QBO ProAdvisor certification. This has been a great experience so far, and I look forward to applying my acquired knowledge in the working world.”
CPB Canada announced the launch of the Alan Salmon Bursary Program last year at the Annual IGNITE Conference. We felt that there is no better way to honour the legacy and contributions made by Alan Salmon than investing in the future of our profession and community.
In doing so, we remember his contributions to our organization and the industry.
