Looking ahead to an exciting year with the Manhattan/Bronx Chapter


By Dr. Sean Stein Smith
Manhattan/Bronx Chapter President

It is an absolute privilege to serve the members of the Manhattan/Bronx Chapter as president during the 2022–2023 fiscal year.

First, I would like to thank our immediate past president, Orumé A. Hays, for her leadership and professionalism, as the chapter— and all of us—found our way forward after the impact of COVID-19.

Our dynamic board is excited to offer an array of different activities, both in-person and virtual, this year and collectively have a focus on engaging members—all of you—and bringing healthy energy to the CPA community! The slate of events for this year includes in-person networking opportunities in various Manhattan locations and virtual CPE webinars on a range of topics—cybersecurity, tax, law, crypto and career development—that should have something for everyone.

As we continue to move into a more open stage of the COVID world, I am excited to meet and interact with as many of our chapter members as possible, and I look forward to seeing you either in person or attending one of the great CPE events we have planned.

One additional area that I and the rest of the board are excited about is redoubling our efforts to increase engagement with our younger members, and attract new members as they graduate from high school and enter college. The CPA profession offers so many different career options that, all too often, get overshadowed, and it is a personal goal of mine to highlight the virtually unlimited number of options CPAs have in the workforce.

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.

Looking forward to a great year, and to meeting you soon.
