Bartlett, Pringle & Wolf of Santa Barbara Earns CalCPA’s Public Service Award

The firm, which supports more than 50 nonprofits, is recognized for its efforts in the community

For services to the community, the California Society of CPAs presented its 2011 Public Service Award to Bartlett, Pringle & Wolf LLP of Santa Barbara.

CalCPA annually presents the award to recognize a firm for its public service contributions on the local, state or national level. The award intends to encourage more CPA firms to initiate or increase their community activities, publicize these activities and reinforce the profession’s reputation for commitment to the public good.

BPW, which was named by Accounting Today as one of 2010’s “Best Accounting Firms to Work For,” supports more than 50 nonprofit organizations, including the Music Academy of the West, CALM (Child Abuse Listening & Mediation), Old Spanish Days Fiesta, the Alzheimer’s Association, the Unity Shoppe, the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, and many local schools and other educational platforms. Staff members also sit on several boards and committees of nonprofit organizations.

BPW is the largest accounting and consulting firm on the Central Coast with seven partners and more than 50 team members. Opening its doors in 1948, BPW has upheld a strong philanthropic culture for more than 60 years and is proud to support the local community.

“Our dedication and time devoted to supporting the community in which we work and live is an element that makes us who we are and exemplifies the essence of our firm’s culture,” said Scott Hadley, managing partner at BPW.

BPW partners Danna McGrew and John Britton accepted the award on behalf of the firm at CalCPA’s Annual Members Business Meeting in Las Vegas on June 24.

Headquartered in San Mateo, CalCPA is the nation’s largest state accounting organization and the largest CPA association in California. It serves 38,000 members in public practice, private industry, education and government.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
