With the celebration of Accountants Week starting today, certified public accountant (CPA) Aixa González Reyes, president of the Certified Public Accountants Association (CCPA by its Spanish initials) of Puerto Rico, announced an extensive calendar of events that the association will be holding for the development and networking of accounting professionals on the island.
In making the announcement, González Reyes stressed the value of certified public accountants and the contributions that they make daily to the economic and social development of Puerto Rico, as well as the importance of giving visibility to their role.
“The work we do is an extremely important one, because it influences all areas of the lives of individuals, families and companies, from the interpretation of financial data, accounting, auditing and budget decisions that are made daily in different scenarios,” she said. “To all, our congratulations for the extraordinary work you do. We celebrate them and invite them to participate in the events we have organized so that they continue to strengthen the profession, as well as their professional development.”
The educational activities organized for Accountants Week run through Thursday. As for social activities, on Tuesday night, the Opening Cocktail and the Delivery of Proclamation by Gov. Pedro Pierluisi Urrutia will be held at CCPA headquarters in Hato Rey. And on Thursday the traditional Patron Saint Festivities will be held.
“We invite all our members to be part of this great celebration, participating in these extraordinary seminars that we have organized for training and professional development, as well as the networking spaces to share among peers and continue strengthening the profession in Puerto Rico,” González Reyes said. “This year we are celebrating 50 years since our foundation, half a century in which we have left a mark.”
