Our main purpose is to provide a source of continuing education opportunities for our members and accounting professionals in our area. We hold regular monthly meetings with outside speakers who present topics on current subject matters relevant to taxation, accounting and management. The meetings provide continuing education credit to the attendees.
The Mahoning Valley Accounting Society is a professional organization in the northeast Ohio area that is open to all Certified Public Accountants and other tax and accounting practitioners.
We also encourage students to join our organization.
