Immigrant Entrepreneurs Summit
Since 2008, Community CPA and Associates Inc. has been the presenting sponsor of Immigrant Entrepreneurs Summit. Ying Sa, as co-founder and chair of the non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, tirelessly volunteers her time and expertise to impact the entrepreneurs in and around the State.
The Immigrant Entrepreneurs Summit's mission is to bring businesses of diverse backgrounds together to share, learn, and celebrate the immigrant entrepreneurship experience and contribution to the overall community. The annual Summit exhibits the success stories of immigrant entrepreneurs. It creates true understanding among different ethnic groups. Business growth tips are shared among immigrant business owners and the keys to success in working with immigrant populations are shared in a noncompetitive and supportive environment.

On behalf of all the women in the Dream Builder class at the Iowa Center, I thank you for your insightful presentation. The way you explained “Assumptions, Profit & Loss, Balance Sheet, Cash Flow Statement, Break Even Analysis and Worst Case Scenario,” was extremely helpful and straightforward. We appreciate you taking the time to share your story and your expertise. We all benefited from the exceptional way you presented the material! You taught us that the numbers don’t have to be overwhelming and gave us invaluable information on how to run our businesses.
We hope to stay in touch and look forward to following your success.

You are amazing! Thank you for sharing your knowledge in such a “real” way. Best of luck to your son in Iowa City.
Thank you for coming to speak to our Dream Builder class – especially for travelling to do so! Our students loved your presentation, and so did we. We hope you’ll return to teach again in the future!
All the best,
Michelle & Jess
Thank you for being our guest speaker at the Honors Dinner and for the unexpected gift of $250. It was unexpected. Your message was wonderful and we look forward to a continuing relationship. Quick side note, I have found a church on the Illinois side who is interested in hosting IES. I am excited about this.
Thank you again for your talk and donation.

After 12 years and 3 CPA's later Ying and her staff at Community CPA resolved a 12 year old tax matter with the highest level of professionism that every business should follow. Every call was answered or returned within that day no matter how busy she was. Ying gave me advice on starting the process myself to save me money on the firms services. Ying and her staff impress me with all the knowledge they have with the tax system. I would like to thank Community CPA again for there professional and honest services they provided me and I highly recommend them. I am so grateful I found this firm!
