PICPA’s 2023-2024 year is about to begin, and we invite you to join your CPA peers to kick off this pivotal year for the profession at PICPA’s 126th annual meeting. The annual meeting is always a fantastic experience for making connections and catching up with old friends, but in this era of change we are facing critical challenges and opportunities that we will be tackled as part of the program. This year, Pennsylvania CPAs will gather in Pittsburgh from May 16 through May 18 at Fairmont Pittsburgh.

On the first day, attendees will hear from Chris Kosty of Schneider Downs on how technology is changing the finance function, state Reps. Nick Pisciottano and George Dunbar on legislative affairs in Harrisburg, in addition to other speakers. Should you come in person (there will be virtual availability for some events), we hope you will join us at the welcome reception that evening to reconnect with friends and meet CPAs from across Pennsylvania. Not only that, but on day one we also will be holding a golf outing at Edgewood Country Club. For those who come out and join us, you will get green fees, a buffet lunch, and a chance to win prizes.   

Cocktail hour with attendees of PICPA annual meetingDay two starts off with a professional issues update. There is a lot going on in the profession, and a lot to discuss. I will be there along with the institute’s out-going president Aaron Risden and PICPA’s 2023-2024 president Betsy Krisher. We will be there to share what we’ve been seeing and hearing, but we hope you bring questions and share your experiences too. Also on the morning of day two, Ankur Agrawal of McKinsey & Company will dive into how the CFO’s role is getting exponentially more complex, and Allan Koltin of Koltin Consulting Group will share the best practices of high-performing accounting firms. These are very important programs for taking stock of where we are as CPAs and where we are going. I urge you to join us. After PICPA’s formal meeting at lunch, we have a pair of great optional excursions for members and their families: a guided tour of The Andy Warhol Museum and a wine and dessert pairing class. There are also several top-notch CPE classes you can attend on day two to sharpen your skills.

To close out our convention in style, on the evening of the 17th we will hold our Annual Meeting Reception at Acrisure Stadium, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Enjoy live music by No Bad Juju, dinner, dancing, and awards. The reception is always a highlight, so make sure you plan to attend.

The final day is largely a day of business, with PICPA Council and Board meetings throughout the day. If you are not a Council or Board member, I hope you will spend the extra day and enjoy all that Pittsburgh has to offer.

We are thrilled that we’ve been able to bring our annual meeting to Western Pennsylvania, and we hope you come out and share that excitement with us. Visit PICPA’s website for a full rundown of PICPA’s three-day agenda and to register
