Jennifer Ziegler Elected President of California Society of CPAs

SAN FRANCISCO, June 25, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- During her inaugural address today as the new chair of the California Society of CPAs (CalCPA) for 2015-16, Jennifer E. Ziegler, CPA/CFE, stressed that relationships with government leaders, CPA firms and minorities are highly important to her.

Ziegler said her top priorities for the year are:

Speaking at the CalCPA Council's annual meeting at the Park Central Hotel, Ziegler encouraged Society members to reach out to state lawmakers.

"A large part of CalCPA's government relations efforts is based on building and maintaining relationships with elected leaders," she noted. "With the variety of issues facing our profession, it's more important than ever to educate policy makers on the real-life impact of legislative proposals."

Ziegler sees an important role for firms in the Society.

"We also look to get firms, including managing partners and firm admins, more involved in all the things we do at CalCPA and really build on our relationship, as CalCPA can play its role as 'The Universal Firm' for the profession," she said.

In addition, Ziegler wants to bring more minorities into the profession and make the Society more inclusive. "I want to push forward a change in our profession's diversity and expose people that may not have the opportunity to our profession," she said. "I know this is no easy task, but this is something that I'm extremely passionate about."

Ziegler previously served as CalCPA's first vice chair. As managing director for Berkeley Research Group, Los Angeles, she consults with clients and counsel and provides expertise in forensic accounting, litigation support, expert witness testimony and fraud investigations.

She holds a bachelor's degree in business administration and accounting from California State University, Northridge. Besides being a certified public accountant, she has certifications in financial forensics, fraud examination and information technology.
