  • Having been a member since the early ’70s, and serving as a past ACA president, I found that meeting and networking with fellow professionals allowed me to develop relationships and friendships which produced client referrals, and talented resources who willingly helped me resolve technical issues. I retired as a partner of PwC in 1998, following 25 years with the firm.
