By Alex Resnick
Nassau Chapter President 

As I write this it’s hard to believe that I am already a quarter way through my term as the 65th President of the Nassau Chapter of the NYSSCPA. It feels like the installation dinner was just last week.

On that note, I would like to thank everyone that attended, sponsored and in any way helped support the 65th Installation Dinner on May 30. Not that I’m biased, but I thought it was a great night and hope all of you enjoyed it as much as I did. Based on all the people still on the dance floor at the end of the night I think many did. I can’t thank enough, all the people who helped put the night together for all their efforts, my fellow board members, our various committees and of course Vivian Levy. None of it would have been possible without your help.

While many of us have been enjoying our summer vacations, your committees have been hard at work running and planning events. On June 26 our COAP program concluded its 5-day event for High School Students at Adelphi University. It is truly an amazing program that teaches students technology, real-life business skills, etiquette, team building and so much more, including field trips to CPA firms. For those who don’t know about this program, it is aimed specifically at groups historically underrepresented in the accounting profession. Hearing the students speak afterwards about their experience, and the effect the program had on them, and hearing from their parents how much this meant to them, was not only an incredible experience for the students but for the CPA’s, teachers and student mentors that participated.

Our summer of giving continued on July 12 with the Ellen Gordon CPAs 4(a): Cause 5k Run/Walk to end Hunger. My hat is off to Ken Rick for running one of the most successful Run/Walks in memory. With the assistance of the Financial Planning Association and NCCPAP we had over 240 participants and raised approximately $16,000 for Island Harvest, and everyone who participated, had a great time.

August 9 was our Annual Golf outing at North Hills Country Club and while it was a bit of hot day to be on the greens, it went off without a hitch. A big thank you to Neal Korenberg & Carol Pinto for all the time and energy they put into the outing every year.

Looking ahead to the next few months, on September 26 we will be hosting our first Sunset Cruise — Member Appreciation Night. Come join us for cocktails, appetizers and an evening of networking with your fellow society members aboard the Captain Pete out of Freeport.

What better way to end the second part of Tax Season than with the NextGen committee’s Accountant’s Kickball Event on

October 17 at Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn. And while it will be run by the NextGen you don’t have to be a NextGen to come join the fun.

And please put a Save the Date on your calendar of November 27, 2018 for our Annual Networking with Attorneys night at

The Fox Hollow Inn, with all profits from the event going to charity. Last year the turnout was amazing, giving both a great networking opportunity and helping out some very deserving charities.

I am looking forward to another great year for our Chapter. Our Officers, Board of Directors and Committee Chairs are working incredibly hard to continue to bring you both CPE and networking events, to give back to the community and to our members, and to further increase member involvement in the Chapter. Your comments, thoughts and suggestions are all greatly appreciated and welcome, please feel free to email me at aresnick@wmrcpa.com. I hope to see all of you at our next event.
