SGV Bacolod enlightens JPIA members on IFRS and career opportunities

Our colleagues in SGV Bacolod branch were busy sharing their knowledge with future accountants last October as the branch sponsored the events of two Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants (JPIA) federations in the region.

First was the Western Visayas Federation of JPIA mid-year convention last 17-19 October. Held in Dauin, Negros Oriental, the event saw 150 delegates from 12 local chapters in attendance. The SGV Bacolod team, including Assurance Director Kristine Debulgado and Associate Jamaica Jagonos, discussed updates on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and career opportunities for accountants.

In addition, the branch co-sponsored the Negros Occidental Confederation of JPIA Annual Congress held last 28 October at the Mambukal Resort in Murcia, Negros Occidental. A total of 450 delegates from 10 local chapters in the province listened as Kristine and Jamaica talked about career opportunities and life in the public practice sector.
