CHARLESTON, WV – Today, Gov. Jim Justice addressed members of the West Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants, speaking at the organization’s 2020 Legislative Seminar in Charleston.
“I’m a business guy,” Gov. Justice said. “When we, as a business community, have a problem, who do we run to? We run to you. All the time. We’re running to you for advice, knowledge, to help us through a tough situation, or to help us with financing; all the many different things you are trained to do.”
The WVSCPA was organized in 1919 and incorporated in 1926. Its mission is to unite, safeguard and promote the accounting profession in the State of West Virginia as constituted by Certified Public Accountants, to cultivate and maintain high professional competency levels and ethical standards within the accounting profession, and to support accountancy education.
The annual WVSCPA Legislative Seminar provides accounting professionals in West Virginia an opportunity to discuss ideas and challenges in the field, as well as the chance to hear from government and business leaders from across the state.
