2017-2018 ASFV Executive Team
President: Ephraim Getahun
I am currently in my fourth year working towards my BBA in Accounting Degree. I would like to continue my education in the direction of achieving my CPA designation. Why I chose accounting as a career: I feel like accounting is the backbone of every company and that it is something that is required for a business to succeed. I love being the reason for success and I believe accounting for a business/corporation is one of the major reasons for success. When I am not at school studying, I am usually spending time with my friends and family.
What made you interested in becoming a member of ASFV?
ASFV was the beginning of hands-on experience for me. I found out about ASFV through a former student who was an Executive member of ASFV at the time. During that time I realized what a great opportunity it would be to become a part of it myself, and so I decided to run for President. I was not aware of ASFV until last year, and that is why I would like to create a bigger network for ASFV so students that students in 1st and 2nd year are aware of the benefits and opportunities that ASFV provides. The club is a great way for students to get involved with the school as well as have a fun environment outside of school. As well it provides students access to the accounting world and leads to great opportunities within the accounting field. ASFV is a newer club and not many students are aware of it. Our goal at ASFV is to enlarge our network.

I’m Jeevin, and I am the CPA Ambassador for ASFV. I’m born and raised in Abbotsford, and I have been attending UFV for nearly 4 years. I’m nearing graduation from the BBA program with an Accounting major. I joined ASFV because I recognize it as a contributor to the success of UFV alumni who have followed career paths into accounting. I wanted to be a part of that influential process.
