November features conferences, a networking event and the Student CPA Fest

By Alex Resnick
Nassau Chapter President

That you are reading this means you survived another Oct. 15. Congratulations to you on another season in the books and to what hopefully will be a much less stressful time and a happier one—the beginning of the holiday season.

As Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, it is a time for us to be thankful for all that is good in our lives, and in this case to be thankful for all the great events that the Nassau Chapter will be bringing you in November.

On Nov. 9, we will co-host the Joint Nassau/Suffolk Chapter all-day A&A conference at the Radisson Hotel in Hauppauge, and on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, we will host the Nassau Chapter Annual Tax & Financial Planning Conference. A big thank you to all the committee chairs for all their work that goes into planning these conferences: Mark Cuccia, Tina Fasano and Franco Martorana from our Accounting and Auditing Committee and two past presidents, Robert Schaffer and Robert Barnett, from our Taxation Committee.

Nov. 14 will bring our third annual Student CPA Fest at Chateau Briand, with workshops during the day for students. We ask that you please join us that evening for dinner and networking with students. Our annual job fair is a great opportunity to recruit students from approximately 25 different colleges. Recruiting tables are still available: To register, click here. Contact for more info.

In the spirit of giving, on Nov. 27, we will be holding our Attorney & Accountant Joint Committee Networking Event at the Fox Hollow Inn in Woodbury. Not only was this an amazing networking event last year, with close to 200 people, but all profits from this event go to charity. This year’s beneficiary is the Family Residences and Essential Enterprises Inc. (FREE). In addition, we ask that you bring a nonperishable food item in exchange for a free raffle ticket; all food donations will go to the Interfaith Nutrition Network (INN), so join us for a great night that also benefits a couple of great charities.

I would like to congratulate the NextGen Committee on its first Kickball Event in October. With about 50 people participating and everyone having a great time, I have a feeling this will become an annual event. Thank you Wei Xu, Jean David Chery, Garrick Turano and Alyssa Popov for a great evening of fun.

As always I encourage you to attend these and other events that our chapter’s committees are presenting. Please see the calendar below for a full listing. Our committees are always looking for new blood, so don’t just attend—consider getting involved as an active member and/or as committee co-chair. We have several committees with openings. Please feel free to contact me for more information.

As always I appreciate all your feedback, comments, thoughts and concerns regarding our chapter— always feel free to reach out to me.

Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving, and looking forward to seeing you all at the upcoming events.
