What Our Members Say
‘The Best Investment You Can Make’
Follow The Path
Experience Growth & Profitability
PASBA is composed of accounting firm owners who meet at regional and national meetings and communicate through an online forum to improve their business skills and their accounting practices. The members who belong to the association have learned that by improving their marketing, sales, management and personnel management skills, they can provide their services more efficiently, manage their business more effectively, increase their profits, and gain freedom while owning their practice.
Members convene each May and November at locations throughout the United States. The May conference is devoted to Marketing & Technology. The November meeting emphasizes Management issues such as production levels, staffing, personnel and preparing for tax season. In addition to the conferences, PASBA also conducts a National Training Meeting, directed to team members, emphasizing payroll, bookkeeping, management, and software specific training.
Our next Conference will be September 19-20, 2019 in Minneapolis, MN. More information, is available here.
Bookkeeper / Supervisor Training Seminars
Each September, members’ bookkeepers and supervisors meet in a central location for training, from beginning to advanced. Many members also attend this meeting for the owners forum/discussion group.
Regional meetings are an opportunity to gather with members in your area to discuss current industry initiatives, technology, marketing strategies, tax planning, and other important topics. Schedule is determined by the attendees and CPE is offered FREE of charge with your membership.
