WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“Our CMA Membership is a great value from a trusted resource. The seminar information is presented in a way that is easy to understand and is fully supported and documented in the literature sent home with us. Steve is very accessible and willing to answer all of our questions, or research those that he doesn’t readily have an answer to promptly.”
          Teresa McIntyre and Reina Marjama, Bookkeepers; Jill Martin, Operations, Paradise Alliance Church, Paradise, CA

“I want you to know I just had my first ever audit and I did really really well. We do fund accounting here and In addition to some accounting stuff, I have learned so much compliance info from your meetings that it really helped prepare me for the audit. I just appreciate what a great source you all have been!”
          Chelsea Sladek, Church Administrator/Director of Children’s Ministry, The Bridge Church, Reno, NV

“I have been a CMA member for a number of years now and the membership fee has been recouped many times in the things I have learned. The seminars always contain valuable and current up-to-date information which I am able to use when returning to the office. I handle all the business functions of two churches and sometimes my time is at a premium, but the time spent is well worth the investment.”
          Maurice Tate, Treasurer, Calvary Assembly of God, Milpitas, CA

“I am very thankful for CMA. When I was hired as the finance director for our church my only accounting experience had been in the “for profit” arena. I had so much to learn. CMA provided invaluable service to me has I learned the ropes of “non-profit” accounting. I can always count on Steve Boersma to keep me abreast of any legislative changes. He is always available by email and responds to my questions in timely manner. Membership in CMA is always something that makes it into my budget.”
          Bonnie McPeck, Finance Director, LifePoint Church, Minden, NV

“Three [or so] years ago I was hired by my church to do the bookkeeping. I had a small bookkeeping company, managing the books for small businesses. I soon learned that taking care of the finances for a church is so different then general bookkeeping. If it wasn’t for CMA we would be noncompliant in many different areas. I don’t have time to research all the new laws and regulations that come out. CMA keeps me up on the latest changes. The networking with other church accountants and bookkeepers in our area is a great resource.”
          Denise Scionti, Bookkeeper, Grace Church, Reno, NV

“It is difficult to keep up with the constant changes in employment and accounting laws. By attending the CMA seminars it provides a way to learn about the changes that specifically affect the ministries in our church and school. We don’t have to read 500-page documents. Steve does that for us and just tells us the important stuff!”
          Helen Wong, HR Manager, Fremont Community Church, Fremont, CA

“Steve and CMA have helped me gain the knowledge I need to feel more confident in my role as accounting and HR clerk. The information I receive at the seminars is pertinent and directly affects the policies, decisions and procedures I deal with on a daily basis. E-consult has been super helpful. CMA has my back, I’m not alone, I have help!”
