The Board sets policies and procedures and monitors the budget and expenditures. We expect to be held to the highest standards of accountability, and we work diligently to ensure that all funds that we raise are allocated wisely to bring the greatest value to our members.

We believe in transparency, not only for our members but also for the bookkeeping and accounting industries in general. That is why we have posted our financial statements on the public portion of our website. We want everyone to know that we are a thriving, growing organization and that we spend every dollar that comes in to create value for our members.
