The NYSSCPA would like to thank Nassau Chapter member Scott Sanders for being a 2016-2017 Chapter Champion!

By Anthony Basile Ph.D., CPA, CVA, CFE

Nassau Chapter President 

The September 15th filing deadline is behind us and I want to wish those faced with the October 15th deadline much success. Before we know it the holidays will be among us and then of course our annual New York’s resolution—Tax Season! 

We have a number of great events in October and November to look forward to. Please look inside the newsletter for important dates and events for the various committees and activities.

The Networking with Accountants Committee (formerly our Cooperation with Bankers Committee) is cosponsoring their semiannual networking event with the Suffolk chapter at Milleridge Inn on October 18. This is a new format for the committees so please come out to support them.

Our 2nd annual Student CPAfest will take place on November 2 at Chateau Briand where we will have students from all Long Island colleges attending informative sessions on resume writing, interviewing skills, networking and the CPA Exam format, as well as a job fair which last year had almost 20 employers and 30-40 students obtaining internships and full time jobs. If you are looking for students for internships or employment don’t miss the only chance this year to meet them at our annual event as we anticipate a big crowd. Many small firms complain that the schools only promote large firms and our Chapter is now bringing the students directly to them with this event. See the flyer in the newsletter to register for the event and/or take a table. If you need a table banner we even help with that too.

Our annual Attorney Accountant Networking Event is November 28 in a new location, the Fox Hollow Inn. Normally we hold this event the week of Thanksgiving, but this year it will be held the week after. We are hoping that attendance will be at an all time high without the holiday and travel restrictions that we normally have.

We have a new Sponsorship Committee thanks to the efforts of Lynne Fuentes and Jill Scher. The committee is working on putting together programs for firms and supporters of the Chapter to increase their exposure at events to the benefit of our members. If you know anyone who may be interested or who could benefit, please have them reach out to Lynne at Lynne@fuentesangelcpas.com or Jill atJill.Scher@marcumllp.com.

Please remember the Robert Katz Endowment at Hofstra, see page 18  in our October newsletter for the information. Checks can be made payable to Hofstra University – memo line Katz Endowment or online at: www.hofstra.edu/katzendowment. (Please check with your employer about your company’s matching gift policy).

I want to encourage our members to try to attend as many seminars and events as possible and visit our Chapter website often.

Please feel free to email me at abasile@basilecpa.com with any thoughts or suggestions you have for improving our chapter and I will bring the suggestions to our Board directly for consideration.

Thank you for the honor of being your President.

Sincerely,

Anthony Basile Ph.D., CPA, CVA, CFE
