About BAVC

BAVC was established by a group of professional bookkeepers in Ventura County inspired by our sister organization, Santa Barbara Bookkeepers Association. Our goal is to bring local bookkeepers together for the purpose of mutual support and networking. BAVC has become a dynamic networking group consisting primarily of independent bookkeepers located throughout the Ventura County area.

We encourage all our members to participate in the various committees. This will also give them an opportunity to create friendships and share ideas on a more personal level. Please call any one of the officers with questions on these committees, or BAVC at (805) 628-2282. The committees consist of:

  • Speaker's Committee
  • Newsletter Committee
  • Referral List Committee
  • December Holiday Party Committee
