Our Firm Taskforces
In many organizations, decisions are made by a handful of leaders in mysterious, closed-door meetings. At PKF Texas – our slogan is PKF - People the Key to our Future® – we invite broad-based dialogue and input through three dynamic task forces. Seats on these taskforces are highly sought and valued positions:
- Staff Advisory Committee – Serves as a forum for “think tank” dialogue between the President and team members from all levels and disciplines as a pulse point for funneling the feedback and needs of the rest of the firm. They research best practices and data to present to the group, intellectually debate and then recommend a solution to better the firm.
- Journalism Advisory Group – Brainstorms topics for the editorial content of The Edge digital magazine, the firm’s award-winning quarterly business periodical and TheCPADesk.com, the firm's corporate blog. The taskforce also serves as an editorial board to submit articles to a variety of publications including Accounting Today, Tax Adviser and other industry news sources.
- PKF University – Guides firm training programs with the goal of the personal and professional skill enhancement of our team members in mind. The firm’s longest standing taskforce, this firm program is modeled throughout the industry and won a Practical Accountant Practice Innovation award.
These and other inter-departmental taskforces meet several times a year. They are important for their functional roles as well as for providing a forum for building thought leadership skills, helping shape our culture and promoting cross-departmental collaboration.
