Edelstein Celebrates 50- Our affiliations

An important piece of who we are as a firm relates to the organizations that we’re members of.  We value the relationships, connections and networks that we have gained through our affiliations with AGN International and the Massachusetts Society of CPAs (MSCPA).

AGN, a worldwide association of independent accounting and consulting firms, gives our clients a global reach for accounting and tax matters. As an AGN Member firm, we have access to the most up-to-date regulations and best practices throughout the world, allowing us to serve clients no matter where they live or conduct business. We have access to business advice globally through the 193 member firms in 85 countries worldwide.  Jerry Jarasitis, Managing Partner from 1998-2006, made it a mission of his to align our firm with an international association and AGN was, and continues to be, the right fit. “As members of AGN, we can provide service to our clients locally with a global reach,” says Managing Partner, Scott Kaplowitch.  We deeply value everything this association has to offer and enjoy the opportunity to cultivate relationships with colleagues around the world.

Being a CPA firm in Massachusetts, it is imperative that we participate as members of the MSCPA.  By having a firm-wide membership, all Edelstein employees can reap the benefits of all the society has to offer.  With over 11,000 individuals involved in the society, we’re consistently able to extend our firm’s reach and brand, network with others, and keep a pulse on all industry trends. With their many committees and development opportunities, the MSCPA has allowed members of our firm to take on leadership roles within the society.  “It was an honor to Chair the MSCPA’s Board of Directors from 2014 to 2015.  I had the distinct pleasure to work with other CPAs to make direct positive impacts on our industry,” said Partner, Bill Mahoney.

In our 50 years as a firm, we are happy to build upon our relationships through these memberships and look forward to all that’s in store as we continue to grow our network.
