AIPB is the national association for professional bookkeepers since 1987.

“We and AIPB are extremely pleased to be co-hosting this Summit at Accountex in 2016,” says RD Whitney, Executive Director of Accountex/Sleeter and Group Vice President, Diversified Communications. “With the enormous impact of changing technology on the bookkeeping profession, the Bookkeeping Summit is the single most important place for finding out about new developments and their impact on the bookkeeping profession,” he says.

The Bookkeeping Summit will offer bookkeepers nationwide a wide range of training by experts in bookkeeping, technology and practice management as well as a chance to network with peers 24/7 on challenges and opportunities in the bookkeeping, accounting and tax professions.

“We are confident that attendees will come away with invaluable training, guidance and shared experience from colleagues they can use on the job,” says Stanley Hartman, Co-President and Executive Director of AIPB. “Bookkeepers will be able to select from more than 75 educational sessions at Accountex, including those being developed specifically for bookkeepers as well as for all members of the accounting and finance professions.”

The American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers, the national association for bookkeepers since 1987, has a long history as America’s association in on-the-job and career training that enhances the status of bookkeepers as topnotch accounting professionals. Its Certified Bookkeeper program is the gold standard for the profession. Over 1,000 colleges and universities offer a course to prepare candidates for AIPB’s national Certified Bookkeeper exam.

“It is only fitting that Accountex/Sleeter partner with AIPB in this Bookkeeping Summit,” says Stephen Sahlein, Co-President and Director of Publishing of AIPB. “It allows us to offer bookkeepers nationwide—AIPB members and nonmembers—the opportunity to participate in a major on-the-job training and networking event.”
