KatzAbosch Becomes Maryland’s Top CPA Firm for the Construction Industry December 1, 2011 KatzAbosch has recently become a proud member of The Construction Industry CPAs/Consultants Association (CICPAC). CICPAC is a national association of CPA firms recognized by their respective markets for providing high quality financial and consulting services to over 6,000 construction entities. Each firm is the exclusive member in its area and must demonstrate proficiency in construction industry services and a reputation for high-quality work and integrity. Through CICPAC’s educational programs and the continuous exchange of ideas and information, members of CICPAC are able to stay at the forefront of the construction industry, allowing them to provide up-to-date services to their clients. When working with a CICPAC member, a contractor can receive the individual attention of one accomplished firm, combined with the unparalleled knowledge and resources of a nationwide network of construction industry specialists. Currently, KatzAbosch is the only firm to be a CICPAC member in the state of Maryland, and one of only 75 firms recognized nationally. In addition to being a member of CICPAC, KatzAbosch’s own Claudia Wolter, shareholder and Co-Chair of the firm’s Accounting and Auditing Services Group, holds the designation of Certified Construction Auditor (CCA) from the National Association of Construction Auditors (NACA). This certification was created to enhance the control environment related to construction projects and help to instill confidence in employers and clients when they secure the services of a professional certified construction auditor. KatzAbosch also employees 6 of the less than 20 Certified Construction Industry Financial Professionals (CCIFPs) in the state of Maryland. This distinction shows individuals have met the highest standards of construction financial management. Earning the CCIFP designation entails a very rigorous exam and relatively few certified public accountants hold this professional distinction, only 700 in the entire United States. KatzAbosch is tremendously honored to be accepted into CICPAC and looks forward to taking advantage of all the new resources that being a CICPAC member has to offer. In doing so, KatzAbosch will confidently continue to provide our clients the best up-to-date knowledge and service possible.
