    TOPIC: Accuracy is a new accounting firm that specializes in performing accounting responsibilities such as bookkeeping, taxes, audits, annual reports, and more for private and independent entrepreneurial businesses. Accuracy has hired you to create a website and must include the following components:

    • Introduction to the website using a Flash or Flash-type animation
    • Company overview to include its mission statement, services it offers, company history, staff information, and one other item generally found on a company's website
    • Customer service information
    • Interactive calendar to view and schedule appointments and meetings with clients
    • Links, site map, FAQs, pricing/rates, and a "contact us" option
      Note from the national office regarding the supposedly fictional company Accuracy: From Kelly School, National Competitive Events: We did not know it is an actual firm.  They should be creating a website for a fictional firm.  My suggestion would be to not use anything from the firm’s actual website, however, if they do, it needs to be noted in references/statement of assurance.

    SKILLS:  The ability to communicate ideas and concepts and to deliver value to customers, using the Internet and related technologies is an important element in a business’ success. This event recognizes FBLA members who have developed proficiency in the creation and design of websites.
