Many opportunities to become more engaged in the Manhattan/Bronx Chapter

Manhattan/Bronx Chapter President

It is an absolute privilege to serve the members of the Manhattan/Bronx Chapter as president during the 2021–2022 fiscal year.

Our profession has gone through a fluid and challenging year and a half. From the ongoing pandemic to changing legislative, technological, virtual and workplace requirements, we evolved, and we thrived. It is an exciting time to be a CPA!

Many thanks to our immediate past president A’Isha Torrence for her service. Despite the COVID-19 challenges, she quickly pivoted to a virtual platform and delivered an impressive array of content to our members.

Our excellent team of officers and board members plans to offer programs with tools and resources that will help us continue to succeed in our careers and businesses. We will be offering numerous CPE courses covering topics such as cryptocurrency, international taxation, practice continuity, real estate and the CPA environment post-COVID. Our social programs include a golf outing, a pizza and poetry open mic night and a holiday party. Please take some time to check out the chapter’s webpage and register for these events in advance, so you do not miss out!

We will hold a blend of virtual and in-person events, adhering to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and NYSSCPA COVID-19 safety guidelines.

I hope you will consider becoming engaged in outreach efforts to high school and college students, so those who might otherwise not think of accountancy as a viable career option might connect with you—a CPA—and thereby take a closer look at the varied career choices before they settle for some other profession. If you have any ideas for how to showcase accounting as a fabulous career, please let me know.

On the issue of engagement, it is so true that we always receive only as much as we put into anything. With this in mind, we've opened the board meetings to every member of the chapter. This is an opportunity to make your voice heard!

Opportunities to become engaged in chapter activities are numerous and the benefits are worthwhile. From technical knowledge to leadership skills and beyond, if you become more engaged in chapter activities, you will surely reap rewards in your careers and businesses.

I would love to hear from you. Let me know what I can do to better serve you and to help in promoting the public awareness of our profession.

Thank you to the sponsors of NYSSCPA’s Manhattan/Bronx Chapter Annual Golf Classic Outing at the Woodside Club. It was great to see the overwhelming support for our accounting program - the Ted Wilson Scholarship.
