An active start to 2019 in the Nassau Chapter

By Alex Resnick
Nassau Chapter President

Happy New Year to all our Nassau Chapter members. As we move forward in 2019, I would like to thank all our chapter officers, directors and committee chairs for all you did last year. Your hard work and dedication gave our chapter a great year. Social and networking events, charity events, technical events and, of course, our Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession (COAP) program were all amazing, and your hard work is what made them happen. Your continued work in the new year will ensure that the Nassau Chapter remains a great and active chapter.

December did not go quietly in the chapter. It was filled with technical events from various committees to help members get ready for the upcoming tax season, the largest of which was the all-day tax event. I need to extend a special thank you to Robert J. Schaffer, Robert Barnett and the entire tax committee for all the hard work they do for this event. Their months of planning do not go unnoticed or unappreciated.

The new year began with our NextGen committee hosting its Networking in the New Year Event on Jan. 8 at Round 1 Entertainment in Hicksville. Our first major technical event was probably also our largest of the year: our Ethics Event and Annual Town Hall Meeting, on Jan. 9. We were again honored to have Ernest P. Smith, senior partner at Nawrocki Smith LLP, as our speaker for this evening. Prior to the ethics event, we held our annual Managing Partners’ Meeting with NYSSCPA President Jan C. Herringer and President-elect Ita M. Rahilly. This summit offered the opportunity to hear about the direction and plans for the Society, as well as for us to share our thoughts and opinions regarding these matters. The very next night, our Woman’s Focus Group held its post-holiday cocktail party and shoe drive at the Garden City Hotel. On Jan. 31, jointly with the Suffolk Chapter, we will hold hour Annual Networking Event for accountants and other professionals from all over Long Island at the Fox Hollow in Woodbury. We hope you will join us this event as well as for the different technical meetings that the chapter’s various committees sponsor throughout the coming months.

While it is still four months away, please save the date of Thursday, May 30 for our 2019 Installation Dinner at the Crest Hollow Country Club. Sponsorships are now available with discounts for early registration. As always your comments, suggestions and questions are welcome—feel free to contact me.
