Nassau Chapter President 

Was it just me this year, or did everyone feel that the Oct. 15 deadline seemed to sneak up on us out of nowhere? I would like to wish all of you luck in getting done, and to remind you—this year more so than most—to take advantage of the downtime that traditionally follows, in order to prepare for the upcoming busy season. Can everyone say 199A?

While all of our various committees are hard at work holding seminars in October and November to help us all prepare for the upcoming season, we also have some other great events coming up as well. We will start with our rescheduled Kickball Event on Wednesday, Oct. 17, 5–8 p.m., at Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn, brought to you by the NextGen committee; this is not just for the NextGen members. Everyone is invited to come and have great time.

Be sure to check our full calendar for November, as we have the annual all-day Joint Nassau/Suffolk Chapter Accounting & Auditing Conference on Friday, Nov. 9, 8:30 a.m.–4:45 p.m., at the Radisson Hotel Hauppauge, as well as the usual committee events throughout the month.

On Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2:30–8:30 p.m., we will host our third Annual Student CPA Fest at Chateau Briand in Carle Place. This is an amazing opportunity for the small and midsize firms to have an opportunity to recruit interns and hire students. Last year, we had 16 firms take tables, as hundreds of students came from all over Long Island, New York, New Jersey  and Connecticut.

The Attorney & Accountant Joint Committee will be holding its semi-annual Networking Event again this year on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 6–9 p.m., at the Fox Hollow in Woodbury. Last year’s turnout was one of the best ever—and with good reason; it was an incredibly enjoyable evening of networking, and the profits went to charity.

To end November, we have the Annual Tax & Financial Planning Conference at the Long Island Marriott Hotel & Resort in Uniondale, which you can attend on either Friday, Nov. 30, 7;30 a.m.–3;30 p.m., or Saturday, Dec. 1, 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. Please check the flyer on page 23 of the chapter newsletter for a listing of the topics and speakers.

Now a plea for help on behalf of the chapter, If you are reading this newsletter, or if you are attending our committee events or any of our networking events, consider taking the next step: get involved—we always need new blood and new ideas to keep our committees fresh. I promise you that the time you give when you get involved is nothing compared to what you will get out of it.

On that note, I would like to congratulate Gianluca Carrabs and Lisa A. Flemen, who are the new co-chairs of the 2019 Ellen Gordon CPAs 4(a) Cause 5k Run/Walk. After this year’s great turnout, and after years of running this event on his own, Kenneth H, Rick is getting some much-needed relief and assistance..

I look forward to seeing all of you at our upcoming events. Please keep checking this page for these and other events.

As always, please feel free to contact me at with any thoughts, questions or comments regarding our chapter.
