PASCPA Newsletter August 2015
August 16, 2015
Dear PASCPA Members,
As we ring in this new fiscal year 2015-2016, I want to welcome you all as your new PASCPA President.
We have a very exciting and promising year with new developments in the organization as we venture in the years ahead. Good changes are underway like launching a newly revamped PASCPA website, monthly newsletter publication just to mention a few. Establishment of scholarship funding for Philippine-American aspiring accounting-major students both in the U.S. and abroad, youth involvement in PASCPA events, unifying Filipino CPAs and creating a self-sustaining organization are my vision.
My heart-felt commendation to former President, Tess Miguel for her dedication, commitment and an outstanding performance in re-shaping PASCPA today.
