One of the hallmarks of Bowman & Company is its’ participation and leadership in the Central Valley. That’s why receiving the Community Foundation of San Joaquin’s Community Partner Award was such an honor.

The award, given at an annual dinner hosted by the Community Foundation of San Joaquin (CFOSJ), recognized both the firm’s work in accounting, auditing and consulting services as well as our philanthropic participation in the community.

Specifically named in the resolution was the firm’s sponsorship of, and participation in, the Community Philanthropy Summit, an annual event to provide leadership, promote a culture of giving and creating resources that address the needs of our community.  Daryl Petrick, CPA and Partner, was recognized for his contributions as a member of the Summit Steering Committee.

Congratulations to the Bowman & Company team on receiving this award!
