UPDATE- EVENT POSTPONED: PICPA Offers Veterans Financial Planning Program

On Monday, the PICPA announced this event has been postponed due to last week's SEPTA strike and ensuing trvel challenges. The event will be rescheduled when the residual effects of the strike and travel disruption have subsided.

Veterans can get free financial advice from members of the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center on Wednesday, November 9, 2005 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The event is part of a national effort by the CPA profession to promote financial literacy and help Americans improve their financial future. Any former or current member of the armed forces is welcome to attend.

Marine Colonel Francis X. Ryan, CPA and PICPA member will be among the presenters offering advice on retirement planning, budgeting, taxes and other financial planning concerns. Col. Ryan is a 32-year veteran of the U.S. military and recipient of a Bronze Star. He recently completed a 6-month tour in Iraq.

“We choose veterans to help at this time to recognize their service and sacrifice for this country,” Glenn Meyer, chair of PICPA’s Personal Financial Planning Committee and the main driver behind the event. “We can sacrifice at least one day to make sure we give back to those who have given so much.”

More information and driving direction to the Philadelphia VA Medical Center is available http://www.picpa.org/visitors/media/press_releases/2005/10270501.asp online or by calling the PICPA.
