SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV — Dr. Cindy Vance, chair of Shepherd University’s Department of Accounting, is a co-founder of the Shenandoah Valley Chapter (SVC) of the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants. The organization will provide local opportunities for CPAs and accounting students in Winchester, Virginia, and the surrounding area, including West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle.

Vance said the SVC mission is to promote continuing education for its members, enhance leadership skills and technical competencies, advocate for interests, and influence students to become CPAs.

“This professional association will benefit CPAs, including Shepherd University accounting faculty, by offering local continuing professional education events that CPAs need to maintain licensure,” Vance said. “The SVC will also benefit local accounting students by providing free membership and networking opportunities with CPAs and employers in the region.”

Vance is the SVC president and board chair. Rejoyce L.H. Lunceford, a Winchester CPA, is vice president of the organization, and Angela Rudolph-Wiseman, a partner with Rutherford & Johnson, P.C., is secretary/treasurer.
