2012 January Newsletter From the Executive Director

We have achieved some major milestones in the last 6 months and will be implementing a lot of new programs, including our annual conference in September 2012. I'd like to share with you what we have been working on as well as what we expect to accomplish in 2012.

Our most recent accomplishments include:

  • We created a new feature rich social media website for our members that has reduced our administration costs and are passing those saving onto our members.
  • We published Reviewed Financial Statements from 2007 – 2010 on our website providing our organization greater transparency and creditability. If you have any questions regarding the statements, please call me personally, 1-866-616-4722 ext. 2
  • We have increased our local level presence with additional regional meeting locations
  • We have added an investigation committee that investigates legitimate complaints from our members' clients. An ethics code of an organization has more value to their members and general public when the organization has the tools in place to enforce it.

In the coming days and months we will be introducing the following programs:

  • New membership renewal fees and payment options - Annual renewal $295; semi-annual $157.50; quarterly $83.75 and monthly $44.95.
  • A student membership program for individuals with no experience that are enrolled in classes and want to become a Certified Professional Bookkeeper (CPB)
  • Our first National Conference in September of 2012. Currently we have 14 sponsors committed including Intuit, Sage, CRA, and Canadian Payroll Association who will be providing education tracks. Members will get preferential pricing and we will be limiting attendance to 450.
  • More promotions with our partners in 2012 such as trainers (Knowledge Bureau), product suppliers (Intuit and Sage) and employment agencies (Robert Half) to name a few.
  • A new Career Center where members and employers can post employment ads for our members to apply to.
  • Select regional meeting content will be available to all members. This is in the development stage and we will be testing different mediums such as PDF handouts, electronic recordings and/or videotaped meetings.
  • New content in our archived database. In addition, webinars will be made available over the next 12 months as PDU credits. This will happen in phases as our administration develops the quizzes for each webinar. Simply watch the recording and take a short quiz to receive your credit(s).

The IPBC really values their members, my commitment as the Executive Director is to use the resources of the organization in an effective and efficient way to meet our short and long term goals. The ultimate goal is to make the IPBC a self regulating organization, just like the CGA, and we would like bookkeepers across Canada to be a part of it.
