The California Society of CPAs passed the 30,000-member threshold in late January.In a statement announcing the milestone, the society credited a continuing “trend of California CPAs flocking to CalCPA for advocacy, technical guidance and professional resources” for boosting its numbers.

CalCPA chief executive Loretta Doon said that reaching that number means that the majority of active CPAs in California are now members of the society. She also praised CalCPA staff and volunteer leaders for working to recruit members and anticipating and delivering products and services to meet member needs.

Doon was named chief executive of the society and the CalCPA Education Foundation in May 2006, after serving for just over a year as the chief operating officer for both groups.

Established in 1909, CalCPA currently has 14 chapters throughout the state.

The society also recently announced that it would be cooperating with the California National Guard's Operation Ready Families Program for a second year, offering free tax counseling services to military personnel and their families at National Guard armories throughout the state.

Tax counseling sessions have already been scheduled for seven locations throughout the state, including Bakersfield, Modesto and Long Beach, Calif.
