PBA started in 1989 with a luncheon meeting of bookkeeping professionals. By joining, we discovered the value of providing support. We realized we could help each other in our business endeavors. As a group, we could encourage the development of individuals performing bookkeeping, accounting and tax services.

In the weeks that followed, a formal organization was founded. Our membership today includes the self-employed, individuals
considering a business and employees of private companies. We have members from around the San Francisco Bay Area.

 Our Purpose

This association of accountants, bookkeepers and tax preparers was established for its members to:
