Queens/Brooklyn Chapter keeps growing, through popular and helpful events 


Queens/Brooklyn Chapter President-elect

The Queens/Brooklyn Chapter continues its growth in both membership and leadership. We have added 142 members between June 2020 and February 2021, leading the state in percentage growth. Our 2021–2022 Society year slate of officers and board members features an exciting mix of seasoned and new chapter leaders. Here they are:

Mark Ulrich, President
Paul Ma, President-elect
Christina Misa, Vice President
Karen G. Deane, Treasurer
Rosslyn Khunovich, Secretary

Directors: Yi (Michael) Zhang, Matthew Gallagher, Victoria Shoaf, Brian Gordon, Shmueli Milecki, Edward Torres, Akshay Shrimanker,
Liren Wei

These leaders will continue to provide our constituency with quality and worthwhile programming, including sole practitioner events and happy hours, student-centered meetings and networking opportunities, short CPE events, as well as our popular annual tax and auditing/accounting conferences. They will also inject new ideas into the chapter.

We hope that the upcoming Society year will mark some semblance of normalcy, as the city and state begin to emerge from the worst of the pandemic. But our chapter will be ready to deliver our events virtually for as long as it is appropriate to do so.  We would also like to focus on the future of our profession through student programming. Our chapter has many excellent accounting programs between the two boroughs that we would like to work with to promote the profession. I would also like to ensure that we include students at community colleges, as our chapter is home to three excellent CUNY community colleges, including the one where I work, Queensborough Community College.

We hope you can all join us for as many events as possible in this upcoming year, and be part of our ever-growing chapter! Please check this page for upcoming events.

Lastly, we wish our very own Queens/Brooklyn chapter member and leader, Rumbi Bwerinofa-Petrozzello, the very best of success in her year as president of the Society. She is a tremendous person, leader and accountant. The Society is very, very fortunate to have her at the helm for the 2021–2022 year. Rumbi, we are behind you 1,000 percent, and we will do all we can to support the goals and objectives you set for the Society.


Queens/Brooklyn Sole Practitioner Roundtable. 

Our August 19- Post Tax Season Debrief Teleconference was a huge success. 

Topic covered were:

1. Residency - We will have State and Local tax expert Brian Gordon CPA discuss residency issues as they relate to the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

2. CARES Act - We will touch on PPP Forgiveness, EIDL, and whether CPA's are billing for their services in this area.

3. Tax Season Debrief: We will discuss the extended tax filing deadline, it's impact on tax planning for 2020, and how CPA's are advising their clients.
For those who missed the event you can view the recording below.  

Meeting Recording

Queens is the easternmost and largest in area of the five boroughs of New York City. It is geographically adjacent to the borough of Brooklyn at the southwestern end of Long Island, and to Nassau County further east on Long Island; in addition, Queens shares water borders with the boroughs of Manhattan and the Bronx. The borough of Queens is the second-largest in population (after Brooklyn), with a census-estimated 2,339,150 residents in 2015. Queens County also is the second-most populous county in New York, behind the neighboring borough of Brooklyn. Queens is the fourth-most densely populated county among New York City's boroughs, as well as in the United States. If each of New York City's boroughs were an independent city, Queens also would be the nation's fourth most populous city, after Los Angeles, Chicago, and Brooklyn. 

Queens was established in 1683 as one of the original 12 counties of New York. It was named after the Portuguese Princess Catherine of Braganza (1638–1705), Queen of England, Scotland, and Ireland.It became a borough of New York City in 1898.

Brooklyn is the most populous of New York City's five boroughs, with a Census-estimated 2,636,735 residents in 2015.It borders the borough of Queens at the southwestern end of Long Island. Since 1896, Brooklyn has had the same boundaries as Kings County, the most populous county in New York, and the second-most densely populated county in the United States, after the county of New York (the borough of Manhattan).

With a land area of 71 square miles and water area of 26 square miles, Kings County is New York's fourth-smallest county by land area and third-smallest by total area, though it is the second-largest among the city's five boroughs.Today, if each of the five boroughs were a separate city, Brooklyn would rank as the third-most populous city in the U.S., behind Los Angeles and Chicago.
