Crawford & Associates was proud to have the opportunity to participate in this year's OSCPA CPA Day of Service, an annual event designed for CPAs and CPA firms to give back to their communities by volunteering for a variety of important causes. Once again in 2017, the Crawford group was excited to help out with setting up the OKC Bricktown Chevy Events Center for Project 31's annual Paint the Town Pink Gala held on October 20 honoring breast cancer survivors and the families. Pictured above are this year's volunteers (from left to right) Brenda Wright, Dwayne Tate, Justin Kersey, Mike Crawford, Marcy Twyman, Wendy Moore and Tammy Hunt. Our thanks go out to Sarah at Project 31 for allowing us to help out again and to each of the Crawford staff that were able to volunteer.

Crawford & Associates was blessed with the opportunity to once again return to lovely San Juan, Puerto Rico and conduct the 2017 Crawford Government Learning Program, co-sponsored by the Puerto Rico Society of CPAs and the local firm of CPA Diaz Martinez. This two-day conference was filled with a variety of state and local government accounting and auditing training sessions in addition to an interactive session on Professional Ethics and Moral Behavior. Speaking at the conference this year were Frank Crawford, Mike Crawford, Marcy Twyman, Brenda Wright and Chris Pembrook. The Crawford & Associates gang were also treated to an evening reception with the group to enjoy drinks and island goodies on the terrace of the Sheraton Old San Juan. Our thanks go out to our great friends at CPA Diaz Martinez, especially Soane for all her help, and to the CPA Society for hosting us once again! It also didn't hurt that the rest of the Crawford & Associates work family joined us after the conference for a week-long cruise of the Southern Caribbean leaving out of San Juan!

On October 21, 2016, the Crawford & Associates staff participated in the Oklahoma Society of CPA's annual Day of Service - an annual statewide outreach event where CPA's around the state take some time off to volunteer for a variety of worthy causes. This year, we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to assist in the event set up for the 2016 Project31 - Breast Cancer Survivor Gala held in Oklahoma City. Project31 was created by two-time breast cancer survivor Sarah McLean to help women and their families work through the emotional scars left behind by breast cancer. Participating in the volunteer effort from the firm and pictured above with Sarah from left to right were Justin Kersey, Candy Dow, Mike Crawford, Andrea Depee, Debbie Crawford (a breast cancer survivor), Andres Nunez, and Marcy Twyman. Thanks to the OSCPA, Sarah and Project31, and the Crawford & Associates staff who were part of this rewarding endeavor.

In September 2016, Crawford & Associates' retired Chairman, Mike Crawford was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame for City and Town Officials in recognition of his contributions to the betterment of municipal government in the State of Oklahoma. The Hall of Fame was formed in 1999 to recognize individuals for outstanding achievements and contributions to Oklahoma local government. To be selected, an honoree must make significant contributions to cities and towns, through their positive spirit of public service, with unquestioned ethics. Mike was honored for having been instrumental in the development and passage of many of the state laws applicable to Oklahoma municipalities, including the Municipal Budget Act, and for his long-term efforts to educate and train city and town clerks, treasurers and financial officials. He is the first CPA to be inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame for City and Town Officials. Click here to see the Induction Ceremony booklet reference to Mike.
