You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give. — Winston Churchill

Hey, Fellow CPAs...Lets Get Involved!

We don’t mean to break your hearts, but June’s was the last newsletter of the season, which means, sadly, that we won’t be back until September 2019. Until then, please enjoy your summer to the fullest.

However, as you’re whiling away some lazy days at the beach, there are avenues of excitement to be explored right here, at the NYSSCPA. As many of you know, or maybe you don’t, our Society has a diverse range of opportunities available for members to give back to the profession that gives us all so much, all while networking with potential new best friends and acquiring leads on great business opportunities. To find out just what those opportunities are, you can check out our info-laden website for events, meetings, etc. that come up throughout the year at

And those opportunities are fantastic for you as well as the Society. In addition to career building and networking, the NYSSCPA offers you the opportunity to stay current on issues, standards and regulations associated with the accounting profession. But it also offers you a chance to become involved.

We have more than 60 committees you can join, between our Nassau and State organizations, that would allow you to:

  • Exchange ideas with the top people in your field or area of practice in a low-key setting.
  • Gain an edge on the latest developments important to you.
  • Develop technical, management and presentation skills.
  • Become immersed in regulatory and legislative advocacy for your profession.
  • Network with experts and potential leads.
  • Earn free CPE at select meetings.

But perhaps the greatest benefits for you are the committees you can involve yourself in...


Accounting & Auditing Litigation & Forensic Services Practice Continuity & Succession Planning
Attorneys & Accountants Management of Accounting Practices Practices Real Estate Committee
CFO & Financial Executives Membership Small-Practice Small-Practice Unit MAP
Cooperation with Educational Networking with Accountants Sponsorship Committee
Institutions Employee Benefits Newsletter Taxation Committee
Estate & Personal Financial Planning NextGen Committee Technology Committee
Financial Literacy NextGen Campus Liaisons Women’s Focus Group

There are quite a few more committees available than listed here, so if you don’t see one that strikes your fancy, simply check out, or to apply, visit the committee application page. And your options abound when it comes to attendance. You can just sit in on a few meetings, or go full throttle and offer to Chair the committee of your choice, where you’ll acquire leadership and organizational skills that will benefit your business in whichever area of accounting you pursue.

Once again, enjoy the sun and surf of the summer, but when you tire of too many scorching hot days in the sunshine, take a little time to offer your services to the Society that benefits us all, the NYSSCPA. That way, you can enjoy the beautiful weather, give back to the Society and your fellow members AND make some connections that will be long lasting and serve you well for years to come.   We’ll see you soon, when the leaves begin to fall.

Wishing a safe and exciting summer to all.
