Changing for the future:
PA Society of Public Accountants announces new name
After an extensive research initiative and membership vote, the
Pennsylvania Society of Public Accountants will change its name to
Pennsylvania Society of Tax & Accounting Professionals.
In order to avoid confusion about membership eligibility, the new name was
chosen and will become effective as of November 1, 2012. Both names will
appear together during a transition period.
Since its inception in 1946, the organization has offered affordable continuing
professional education, legislative advocacy, resources and networking
opportunities for CPAs, PAs, EAs, accountants and tax practitioners statewide. As one of the two dominant Pennsylvania State Tax and Accounting organizations, the group is noteworthy for focusing specifically on smaller firms and sole practitioners that represent small business and individual taxpayers.
“Changing our name to Pennsylvania Society of Tax & Accounting Professionals launches a fresh, progressive image for us, underscoring our recent growth,” explains Past President Francis J. Cellini, EA, ABA, ATA. “We are proud to serve our existing members, while welcoming the next generation of best-in-breed practitioners. Our new name reflects our past as well as our future.”
“Our name has changed, but what we stand for remains constant,” adds
Executive Director, Sherry L. DeAgostino. “We are here to promote and protect our members’ interests and help them in every aspect of their business, from professional development to programs and resources specifically tailored to smaller practices.”
Along with the name change, the organization kicked off a rebranding campaign to be rolled out over the next year, featuring a dynamic new logo and tagline (“Leverage the power of smaller practices”). Future plans include enhancements to the organization’s award-winning website and increased membership outreach.
