My promises to you as supported by a track record to you are are as follows:

I will engage in considerable study (in addition to the Georgia State Board of Accountancy Requirements) as well as participate monthly in Continuing Professional Education Courses approved by others including testing by accounting and tax course publishers. Also, attendance at seminars helps to keep me up to date with the ever more complex tax law as well as to changes to accounting principles and financial reporting trends. Periodic peer reviews by another CPA firm helps assure quality control.

Nevertheless, there is no substitute for integrity, intelligence, above average memory, higher education (including a private liberal arts college BA, a West Virginia University - MA in Economics, and part of the State of Georgia University System gaining credits and honors in accounting). Due professional diligence and judgement comes from experience. These were tested and passed by me by the Uniform National and State of Georgia CPA certification process in 1977.
