Welcome to the Bellevue Chapter of the Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance


Bellevue Chapter No. 159, located in Bellevue, Washington, was chartered in 1991 as an affiliate of the national organization of the American Society of Women Accountants. The Society has over 1,340 members throughout the US. ” ASWA ” founded in 1938 by the American Women’s Society of Certified Public Accountants, is a professional organization dedicated to the advancement of opportunities for women in all fields of accounting.

As of January 31, 2013, our organization on a national level has publicly launched our new name to Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance with the tagline “Connect. Advance. Lead”

With a more progressive name and rebranding, the Accounting & Financial Women’s Alliance modernizes its approach to effect change in the industry.

Bellevue Chapter now attracts women in all aspects of accounting from this growing business community, both certified and non-certified. All accountants on the Eastside are welcome, as members can enjoy the benefits and resources of this professional organization.

The Bellevue Chapter meets on the third Tuesday of each month. Quality speakers provide a high level of CPE in accounting, auditing, tax and management, as well as topics of interest.
