Hello everyone! First off I would like to thank Catherine Censullo for her leadership over the past year. I remember when I first met Catherine at a board meeting. She was very kind and welcoming and made me feel at home immediately in the new group. During her term as president, she brought this sense of togetherness to our chapter. She excels at bringing professional groups together and making it a natural easy fit while providing valuable networking opportunities to our members. I hope to live up to the high bar she has set.

Although I served as president of the Manhattan/Bronx chapter in the past, this feels like a new experience for me. I am so excited to have the opportunity to lead this chapter over the next year. I have a few items I would like to focus on during the upcoming term which include charitable initiatives, collaboration with other chapters and continued expansion of networking opportunities for our members. Not only do I want to make sure our members experience the benefits of the NYSSCPA, I hope to foster a sense of community among the CPAs and their families in our area. Stay tuned for more on each of these!

As for upcoming events, our annual Estate, Tax and Financial Planning Conference will be held on June 9th at Doral Arrowwood. We also have our annual golf outing occurring on Monday June 12th at Willow Ridge Country Club. If you are not a golfer, there is also a cocktail hour and dinner you can attend. I’ve been to this event before and had a wonderful time while making new connections with local professionals. This is a wonderful opportunity to step away from your desk and just have fun!  

Please considering becoming involved with one our committees where you can have an impact in your community.  Not only are there great learning sessions, but it provides valuable leadership and committee experiences that can enhance our profession.  We welcome your involvement and hope to see you at an upcoming event.
