The Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) is the Philippine’s professional accountancy body whose members commit themselves to exemplify professional excellence and the promotion and maintenance of high standards – both in profession and morals.

As it is, PICPA holds a widespread influence on all practicing and aspiring accountants in the country and because accountancy shares such an intimate relationship with the business industry, new regulations and globalization have spurred the organization to keep up with the changes. As such, its National Board of Directors for the federation year 2016-2017 has established the theme, “Level Up” for its members as the driving force behind not only keeping up with the fast paced changes of the business world but to be one step ahead, to be the best accountants they could be and never settling for less.

Starting this year with that goal in mind, the organization held its Induction Ceremony for its National Board of Directors for the federation year 2016-2017 last July 7, 2016 at the Edsa Shangri-La Hotel in Mandaluyong City. It formalized the inauguration of the new President, Regional Directors, Sectoral Directors and Officers in which renowned members of the PICPA Zamboanga-Basilan Chapter, Ms. Elizabeth A. Parreño, CPA; Ms. Florivel M. De Jesus, CPA and Ms. Susan A. Alcantara, CPA were formally elected as the Regional Director for Southern Mindanao, Regional Sectoral Representative for Public Practice for Southern Mindanao and Zamboanga-Basilan Chapter President respectively. The organization also held its Annual Planning Conference in the succeeding two days after the Induction Ceremony.

Following the example of its national sector, the PICPA Zamboanga-Basilan Chapter held its General Assembly and Induction Ceremony last July 15, 2016 at the Celebrity Hall of the Grand Astoria Hotel.
