45th Anniversary Wrap Up
Oh, what a year it has been! Our firm turned 45, and we are still in awe. It has truly been an honor and privilege to serve our clients throughout the San Joaquin Valley as a trusted advisor and to help our community become what it is today. Our mission to accomplish those core tenets inspires our accountants each day.
During our year-long anniversary celebration, we continued our devotion to our community by supporting worthy causes and activities. This year alone, we sponsored over 40 community events, pulled out our putters for 10 charitable golf tournaments, and showcased our services alongside our clients at four ag focused tradeshows.
We were especially thrilled to highlight the 45 non-profits our staff personally supports throughout the year with their time and effort. We hosted our Nonprofit Mad Dash, during which each member received $45 to donate to the organizations nominated at the event. Through the Mad Dash, we donated a total of $1,795 to local nonprofits such as the Valley Children’s Healthcare Foundation, the Humane Society of Stanislaus County, Love Modesto, and Murals in Motown.
Of course, we’ve had a lot of other highlights this year!
• Awarded the Modesto Chamber of Commerce’s Chamber Member of the Year at the 104th Annual Gala and Member’s Choice Awards
• Awarded a Best Places to Work designation for the Central Valley
• Named an INSIDE Public Accounting Top 400 Firm
• Participated in CalCPA’s 100% Membership Firm Program and recognized as a Top 150 Firm within the state
• Received the Mujeres Latinas de Stanislaus Community Champion Award
And, our very own Chad Van Houten, CPA and Partner, was recognized by the Modesto Bee as a “20 under 40” rising professional in our community.
As we said at the beginning of the year, we’re looking forward to spending the next 45 years serving our fantastic clients, growing our team, being your trusted advisor, and continuing to provide the best accounting services in the Valley. Thank you for your business, and we hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
