Embracing a new chapter year

By JACQUELINE E. MILLER  |  Adirondack Past Chapter President

The Adirondack Chapter wrapped up the season on Nov. 22 with its annual Tax Conference at Crowne Plaza in Lake Placid. The conference had a fantastic turnout. Thank you for your continued support of our continuing education events.

We were fortunate to have a series of informative speakers on hand for the day, starting with Suzanne Reusch from the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance. Susan Marks-Jensky from the Internal Revenue Service followed, and Mark DeRosa, who works in the health care industry, brought the group up to speed regarding late-breaking changes on the horizon.

Kirsten Darrah from the Plattsburgh Social Security office reviewed retirement options, while Neil Gilberg from the Workers' Compensation Board enlightened us with examples of "true employees" versus independent contractors. Barbara S. Dwyer wrapped up the day with a few "need-to-know" tax tips and Nathan Farkas, our incoming chapter president, offered a few words to the participants. Our objective for the program was to offer good local continuing education for members, and we succeeded.

As outgoing president, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to all those individuals I have had the pleasure to work with. Thank you all for your patience and for supporting and assisting me along the way. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to serve as the Adirondack Chapter president.

The Southern Tier is located on the Pennsylvanian border of New York State, lying northwest of New York City and southwest of the State Capitol of Albany.  Containing Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Delaware, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, and Tompkins counties, the region boasts some of the state’s finest natural resources and agriculture, as well as significant educational institutions and readiness for manufacturing companies.  

In addition to housing both a booming tourism industry and dozens of prominent universities such as Binghamton and Cornell, the Southern Tier is also the location of many businesses that employ over 350,000 highly-skilled workers.  

While mostly known for industrial machinery and materials processing, and contributing to the electronics, imaging, and simulation industries, businesses choose the Southern Tier for its proximity to the marketplace, abundant natural resources, and its extremely well-educated workforce.
