Message from the incoming Chapter President:

What the Northeast Chapter of the NYSSCPA means to me –

When I first joined the Northeast Chapter, I was inspired to start the Northeast Chapter Young CPA Committee (now known as the NextGen Committee) because I did not want to be the only Young CPA in the room at Chapter events.  This experience helped me to develop my skills in networking, project management and public speaking.  As a Young CPA I joined the Board of Directors and ascended through the ranks of Secretary, Treasurer, Vice President, President-Elect, and President.  

My experience representing the Northeast Chapter on the Statewide Board of Directors expanded my professional network beyond the Capital Region and helped to develop my skills in negotiation and diplomacy. Feeling isolated as the only CPA in an organization, I started the Northeast Chapter CFO Committee so that our members in industry (including me) have a support system.

I am truly indebted to the NYSSCPA and the leaders of the Northeast Chapter for their mentorship and opportunities to develop my professional network, leadership skills and career goals.

Today I am volunteering to take on the role of President once again so that our Northeast Chapter members will continue to have professional development opportunities.  The strength of the Northeast Chapter resides in the engagement of our members.

Recruitment for Fiscal year 2021-2022 is underway and will close on May 31st. Please consider getting involved by joining one of our committees, the Board of Directors, or the Executive Board.  Just send me an e-mail noting your professional background and expression of interest at bvanbladel@cfo-for-hire.com.

Thank you for your consideration,

Beth van Bladel, CPA
CFO for Hire, a division of BST & Co. CPAs, LLP

Please note – All nominees must be in compliance with CPA licensing rules and NYSSCPA membership requirements.
