She is looking forward to working together in pushing forward programs that will benefit our community.
Incoming President Marissa Velarde and also the Association’s Founding President, laid out her three goals for the organization namely: Revive the Mentorship Program; Coordinate with Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar in the Philippines to bring awareness to Philippine Accountants of the presence of the PICPA Chapters in Canada: PICPA Vancouver and PICPA Calgary; and Push forward PICPA Vancouver’s recognition as a business associate of CPA BC.
