Attorney Gary Ilagan from Fong • Ilagan runs the monthly Speaker Series for the Greater Houston Region of the Philippine-American Chamber of Commerce (PACC) Texas. There was a remarkable, record-setting number of attendees at the Hampton Inn & Suites Houston-Westchase for the most recent installment of PACC Texas’ monthly Speaker Series on March 21, 2019, titled “2018 Tax Reform Impact: Top 5 Tax Reform Changes You Should Know for Businesses and Individuals.” The discussion featured members of the Filipino-American Accountants of Texas (FAATX). The following speakers represented FAATX at the last Speaker Series:
- Michelle Brumfield
- Ari Domingo
- Leya Tacas
FAATX is the only professional organization for accounting in the Greater Houston area that takes an active role in the Filipino-American community by reaching out to young accounting professionals and students to foster and promote their career development and connecting them with businesses and individuals through various activities. FAATX also offers leadership, mentorship, and direction for young accountants in the profession. #faatx
In addition to the monthly Speaker Series, PACC Texas plays an active role in bilateral Trade Missions to and from the Philippines and hosts award-winning Consular Outreach programs in Dallas and McAllen, Texas. For 10 years, the Greater Houston Region of PACC Texas handled the logistics for all Consular Outreach programs in Houston on behalf of the Philippine Consulate General of Los Angeles. Through their tireless volunteer efforts, PACC Texas led the charge to convince the Philippine government to reopen the Philippine Consulate General in Houston in 2018 after 25 years of absence. PACC Texas’ mission is “to inspire the spirit of entrepreneurship among Filipinos, Filipino-Americans, and their friends to promote the growth of business and professions and to be of service to the community.”
