Cheri H. Freeh, a CPA and principal with Quakertown, Pa.-based Hutchinson, Gillahan and Freeh PC, was elected 2011-2012 president of the Pennsylvania Institute of CPAs at its annual meeting.

"For the past several years, I have been very involved with PICPA's legislative agenda, and I look forward to continuing our efforts in improving the business climate for our membership, accountants in general, and the entire business community," Freeh said. "I believe PICPA is capable of helping to make Pennsylvania a better place to live and do business. I'm also excited about PICPA's efforts to address diversity in our profession, and anticipate continued momentum in developing these initiatives."

A former chair of the institute's State Taxation Committee, Freeh is also a talented singer and musician: She performs frequently, has recorded a CD, and recently sang the national anthem at the 2011 Spring Council Meeting of the American Institute of CPAs. She also plays the pipe organ - one of the few working ones in the state is located in the converted church that houses her office.

The other officers elected for 2011-2012 are: Robert C. Jazwinski, of Hermitage, as president-elect; Robert F. Firely, of Sinking Springs, as vice president; Lisa A. Myers, of Camp Hill, as vice president; and Julius C. Green, of Philadephia, as treasurer.
