SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The California Society of CPAs (CalCPA) has purchased a building in Burlingame adjacent to the Bayshore Freeway (U.S. 101).
CalCPA will relocate from San Mateo to 1710 Gilbreth Road, Burlingame, upon refurbishment of that facility. The new building is occupied by the American Heart Association, which will become a tenant of CalCPA.
In addition to CalCPA, the nation's largest state CPA association, the new headquarters will house the CalCPA Education Foundation, the nation's leading provider of continuing professional education (CPE) programs for CPAs.
"We are excited about moving to Burlingame," said Tim Good, CalCPA chair. "The building is easy to access for both our members and our staff. And because drivers can easily see our logo and name on the building from the freeway, it will be a great way to promote CalCPA.
"We studied several facilities in the area before selecting the Gilbreth Road location for our new headquarters. We think it provides great advantages both in terms of location and in providing services to our members. It will feature a classroom with up-to-date technologies that will enable us to improve our continuing professional education offerings, especially to those CPAs taking advantage of our numerous webcasts."
CalCPA has occupied offices at 1800 Gateway Drive, San Mateo, since January 2011.
Headquartered in San Mateo, Calif., the California Society of Certified Public Accountants (CalCPA) (calcpa.org) is the nation's largest state accounting organization and the largest CPA association in California. Through CalCPA Institute, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, CalCPA members provide financial literacy programs to high schools and community groups.
