By Alex Resnick
Nassau Chapter President

A year ago at this time, I was busy writing my speech thanking you all for the honor of being installed as president of the Nassau Chapter. It’s hard to believe that a full year has gone by. It was one of the—if not the—shortest years of my professional life, as well as one of the most rewarding.

This is the last president’s message that I get to deliver on behalf of the chapter, so I figured I’d better make it a good one.

I would like to open with a thank you to Lynn Fuentes and Anthony Basile, our past presidents. Your guidance and assistance were invaluable. Natalie Verbanac (president-elect), Geri Gregor (vice-president), Vivian Martinez (treasurer) and Mark Cuccia (secretary), it has been a pleasure and honor to work with all of you. Our entire chapter owes you all a huge thank you for the dedication and time that you have given the Nassau Chapter to ensure that it remains one of the crown jewels of the State Society.

Those who sit on our board of directors are something of unsung heroes of the chapter. Not only do they give their time, ideas and support to the chapter, but almost every one of them has been, or is, a chair or co-chair of one or more committees. Our committees are our lifeline to the membership. Thank you all for everything you have done this past year and for all that I am sure you will continue to do for the chapter in the future.

On May 30, 2019, at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, we will be installing our 66th president, Natalie Verbanac. I will be turning over the keys to the chapter to an amazing and dedicated leader. It will be a great night of fun, music and networking. If you have not already registered for the dinner, please do so; it is always a great evening.

On this night, we will also be honoring Lisa Haynie with the Distinguished Service Award for all she has done for the chapter over the years. As much as I would like to be able to name all of her accomplishments and what she has meant to this chapter, we would run out of space, and even then, I could not list them all. For now, let me say this: There is not a position in the chapter she has not held, there is not a committee that she has not served on or assisted, and there has not been a president who has not looked to her for answers and guidance at some point.

As part of my final message, I would like to urge all of you to get involved with your chapter. The more you give to the chapter, the more you will get out of it as well. Our chapter is only as strong as the support it gets from its members. All of our committees will be holding organizational meetings over the next several weeks, an excellent time to let them know what you want to get from the committee, as well as what you can contribute.

In addition to our upcoming installation dinner, we will have our Ellen Gordon CPAs (4)a Cause 5k Run/Walk at Eisenhower Park and our Chapter’s Annual Golf Outing, as well as, many committee events. Please check our calendar for dates and details, and join us at these events.

As I move on to the position of immediate past president, it is with a bit of sadness, as I have truly enjoyed my time serving as president. I thank you again for the privilege of serving as the 65th president of the Society’s Nassau Chapter. I look forward to my continued involvement as co-chair of the Small-Firm MAP Committee and working with the board on continuing to improve the chapter for all members.
