Ziegler said her top priorities for the year are:

  • Advocating for members on issues that affect the profession;
  • Attracting, educating and supporting CPAs in their professional and personal growth; and
  • Enhancing and promoting the visibility of the profession and CalCPA.

Speaking at the CalCPA Council’s annual meeting, Ziegler encouraged Society members to reach out to state lawmakers.

“A large part of CalCPA’s government relations efforts is based on building and maintaining relationships with elected leaders,” she noted. “With the variety of issues facing our profession, it’s more important than ever to educate policy makers on the real-life impact of legislative proposals.”

Ziegler previously served as CalCPA’s first vice chair. As managing director for Berkeley Research Group of Los Angeles, she consults with clients and counsel and provides expertise in forensic accounting, litigation support, expert witness testimony and fraud investigations.
