Several new programs add up to a successful year

By Tim Doyle

Northeast Chapter Past President

I can’t believe how quickly the year has passed. It has been an honor to work with the Northeast Chapter officers and board on continuing the growth of our programs and participation this year. This year, we added several new programs, including a clambake, an evening out at the ballpark in July and a recent game night with the Albany Devils. We saw increased participation from our NextGen folks, present and future, through our Career Opportunities in the Accounting Professions (COAP) program, students’ night and the continued growth of our NextGen group. The successes we experienced this year could not have happened without the assistance of our officers, board and committee members. 

In early February, our NextGen Committee hosted a networking night at an Albany Devils hockey game.  Twenty of our young professionals and their guests attended the game, which included a networking happy hour prior to the game with drinks and pizza. Committee member Bethany Metzgar even got to ride on the Zamboni! The event was a lot of fun and a great success, and we hope to carry the success on to future events.

The annual Northeast Chapter Golf Outing will be held on May 15, at Pinehaven Country Club. The outing will have a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start, followed by cocktails, dinner and awards. We anticipate having about 100 participants. The tournament benefits the Sponsor-a-Scholar program in Albany, and we have raised over $5,000 for college scholarships for students in the Capital region.

I want to give a special thank you to Christopher M. Cannucciari, our past president, for all of his assistance in my transition to president. Last, I want to note that the continued success of our chapter is in great hands, as Jennifer Pickett, our incoming president, has been an officer with the chapter for several years now and has put together another strong board. I look forward to seeing what the new year brings. Thank you, all!

Giving Back to the Community

The Northeast Chapter NextGen Committee's Annual Marine’s Toys for Tots Drive was held on Tuesday, December 13, 2016.  Held at Wolf’s 1-11 in Colonie, NY, the  event drew more than 25 individuals. The chapter had strong support from some of the area’s firms. The program has grown to include 14 counties in the Capital Region and as the need continues to grow locally, the chapter hopes to continue to expand this event.  A special thank you to ADP for their sponsorship.
