PICPA Headquarters Moves to 18th and Market

PHILADELPHIA – The Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) relocates its headquarters to 1801 Market Street in Philadelphia beginning Monday, Jan. 16, 2012. The new location is just blocks from its previous office space on Arch Street in Center City. The PICPA’s entire Philadelphia staff will make the move.

“This move allows the PICPA to stay conveniently located in downtown Philadelphia, giving members and employees easy access to our headquarters. We look forward to utilizing the new space and upgrade in services, such as video conferencing, so we can offer members statewide the ability to have virtual face-to-face interaction,” says Michael Colgan, PICPA CEO and executive director.

The PICPA’s new office at Ten Penn Center is equipped with a flexible meeting space, shared learning center, and a video studio to support the organization’s multimedia efforts. The relocation will reduce the company’s costs.
