Looking forward to the year ahead

By Eva E. Yehl (Campanis)
Rochester Chapter President

I am so happy to officially be the president of the Rochester Chapter of the NYSSCPA! After moving from vice president to president-Elect over the past two years I have learned a lot— there is so much support and knowledge from our chapter board and other officers and members. I am very fortunate and excited to serve our Rochester Chapter as I move into the president role and look forward to the year ahead!

Member Appreciation Spotlight Rochester Chapter


Shayla Scott — Shayla’s contributions to the Rochester Chapter have been integral to the success of the chapter’s Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession (COAP) program over the last few years. Shayla participated in the program as a high school student, and since the start of her professional career and membership in the Society and in the Rochester Chapter, Shayla has spearheaded the COAP program every year in the Rochester area. This year was a great success, and her dedication to encouraging students and future CPAs had a direct influence on her program, becoming a weekend, overnight program at a local college campus, after the pandemic had disrupted it.
