Promoting the CPA profession at Career Day events


Manhattan/Bronx President-elect

One of the many ways that the Manhattan/Bronx Chapter promotes our CPA profession is through our Career Day events. These events are organized and hosted by one of our most valued members, Past President Barbara A. Marino. An event of this nature is very important to any organization or profession because it fosters continuity of the organization or profession.

Our Promoting CPA Careers Committee’s primary responsibility is to develop programs to promote our CPA profession. This is achieved by hosting at least two events each fiscal year at our Society’s office located at 14 Wall Street, to educate high school students and their teachers about our profession. These events normally run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and feature members with different specializations who come and present. If you are available to present at one of our up coming Career Day events to help promote our prestigious profession, please contact Barbara A. Marino at

On another note, on May 4, we hosted a two-hour CPE event at 14 Wall Street. The topic for this event was “Executive Impersonation Fraud,” which was presented by David S. Zweighaft from DSZ Forensic Accounting & Consulting Services LLC. Thank you, Iralma Pozo, for coordinating this event.

In closing, we have received responses from members who have read our recent announcements in The Trusted Professional. Thank you, DanielG. Mazzola, for offering to present a CPE session, “Smarter Social Security,” on Oct. 25 at the NYSSCPA offices. We are continually looking for members to get involved or become more involved—with more, we can achieve more. Are you ready to make your contribution? If yes, please visit the Manhattan/Bronx Chapter website at or contact me at the email address below.
