New York State Society of CPAs Launches “Smart Money Habits” Financial Literacy Intiative 

NEW YORK – (April 04, 2023) – The New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA) is pleased to announce the launch of their “Smart Money Habits” initiative. The newly created initiative is meant to educate and empower the public regarding vital aspects of financial literacy. The campaign includes a resource webpage that provides original and sourced content from trusted partners and organizations which will support everyone from students to seasoned professionals to senior citizens. The campaign also includes three informative videos that discuss making smart money moves for all ages. 

“The NYSSCPA supports financial literacy initiatives as a part of our strategic plan. The importance of our clients, communities and students making smart financial decisions from an early age cannot be neglected and could easily change the trajectory of their lives. I don’t think there is a better time for the NYSSCPA to launch this initiative than [during] Financial Literacy Month,” said Calvin Harris Jr., the NYSSCPA’s Chief Executive Officer. 

For more information on the financial literacy initiative or for all media inquiries, please contact Media & Government Relations Manager Jovan C. Richards at
