Management of an Accounting Practice

The Management of an Accounting Practice (MAP) Committee acts as an advocate, a resource and a representative in assisting members in connection with the effective management of their accounting practices. The MAP Committee accomplishes its purpose via these major functions:

Develops information on MAP issues through discussions at committee meetings and accumulation of practice management data via a bi-annual Texas/PCPS Survey and similar data gathering research.

Produces, develops and promotes the annual New England Practice Management Conference attracting approximately 100 firm partners from around New England. This annual event provides a chance to attend advanced level education presented by national experts.

The MAP Committee meets monthly and is led by Laura Gannon, Gannon CPA, LLC. If you need to reach Laura or have questions regarding the committee please contact the Committee Liaison, Julia Ekelund.
