All VWM CPAs are members of the Georgia State Society, which provides numerous volunteer opportunities throughout the year, allowing us to share our abilities and give back to our profession and our community.
One such opportunity is the Society’s Financial Literacy Program, whereby members make presentations to students around the state on financial literacy topics including budgeting, saving and investing.

In the spring, Cobb Young Professionals participate in United Way’s Shoebox Campaign, which collects and distributes shoeboxes filled with toiletries to homeless women and children across the Greater Atlanta region.
