PBA started in 1989 with a luncheon meeting of bookkeeping professionals. By joining, we discovered the value of providing support. We realized we could help each other in our business endeavors. As a group, we could encourage the development of individuals performing bookkeeping, accounting and tax services.
In the weeks that followed, a formal organization was founded. Our membership today includes the self-employed, individuals considering a business and employees of private companies. We have members from around the San Francisco Bay Area.
Next Meeting: OCTober 17th with Susan Woo From The California Board of Equalization. Meeting will be held in San Mateo at 7pm-8pm.
These meetings are designed to address the Association's objective to support and encourage professionals in the bookkeeping profession. The format includes a knowledgeable speaker, opportunity to network, and group discussion of relevant topics.
Joining = Member Benefits

We encourage personal and professional growth through active participation and leadership development.
Last Meeting In Review
We had a lively and informative session with professional organizer Lauren Mang last Tuesday evening. Lauren travels the world helping people get organized so they can live happier and more productive lives. We took a test to figure out our learning style, we learned how to tackle large organizational projects, the downside of multi-tasking (with a live example!), and what holds us back from getting rid of our unused "stuff". It was so fascinating and there's so much more to learn from Lauren that we have asked her to return in December, just in time for the New Year!
