A doubling of membership in the last five years has caused the Utah Association of Certified Public Accountants to move into larger offices in the Executive Building, 455 E. Fourth South. It formerly was located at 669 S. Second East.

Jeannie Patton, executive director, said the Utah group now has 1,800 members in eight chapters and the new space will allow it to better meet the needs of the 1,300 members in the Salt Lake area and provide additional service to the public and business community.As a public service, Patton said, the association has a CPA referral service to assist people in obtaining CPA services and a speakers bureau, which provides qualified speakers on business and financial topics. The group also cooperates with high schools, colleges and universities to inform students of educational requirements and career options in the accounting profession.
