Name Change for Gold Coast Chapter
Effective July 1, 2012 the name of the Gold Coast Chapter was changed to North Dade/South Broward Chapter. This reflects more accurately what our boundaries are and helps us to attract new members in the area.
Our Chapter's Board, in following the wishes expressed by some Chapter Members, established the ‘FICPA North Dade/South Broward Chapter Education Endowment’ f/k/a ‘FICPA Gold Coast Chapter Education Endowment’ to fund annual scholarships to local universities. The chapter is well on its way to meeting its goal of $100,000 and is already at $43,800+. We can meet this goal easily if all of our members contribute. Please consider pledging $100 a year over the next five years or another donation of any amount. We will have information available at meetings or you can contact our Endowment Chair, Gary Saslaw at (305) 682-0200 for more information or to request a PLEDGE form.
