Ed Yoder has devoted close to two decades to the profession of public accounting. He has a long-standing affinity for helping clients make sense of their debits and credits, showing how they fit together to tell the organization’s financial story.
Ed appreciates the clarity with which accounting serves as the language of business and relishes the opportunity public accounting provides him to assist clients in both solving everyday problems and getting to the bottom of complex accounting challenges they may be facing.
It was back in high school and college when Ed first found that accounting just made sense to him, and the field has held his interest ever since. He was attracted to the nonprofit niche because of the invaluable services these organizations provide, making our community a better place. The tremendous variety of not-for-profit entities offers challenging work that keeps him engaged. In addition, he observes that the passionate people that choose to work for nonprofits are high-quality individuals who are a pleasure to work with.
Outside of his professional work, Ed devotes substantial time to supporting various community organizations. He serves as treasurer for the Rockingham County Rotary Club, Valley Baseball League and Crime Solvers of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. In addition, he is a board member of Massanutten Regional Library and an advisory board member of Shenandoah Valley Children’s Choir.
