Why Most Accountants Need a New Firm Website
Editor's Note
Gail Perry, CPA, Managing Editor This week we continue our new series, A Day In the Life, with an article about what it’s like to be a CFO. Marc Palker of CFO Consulting Partners LLC kindly shared some of his experiences with us. Other articles in this issue explore the world of CFOs from different angles. A new survey highlights some of the problems CFOs face, and an article from the Pennsylvania CPA Society explains what it takes to become a CFO.

As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions on any of our articles.

Best wishes,
Gail Perry, CPA
