By William C. Huether

Suffolk Chapter President

I hope you had a successful 10/15 deadline and are now enjoying a little breather and some relaxation over the next couple of months. It amazes me how quickly this year has flown by. The holidays are right around the corner and I hope you all are able to take the opportunity to enjoy quality time with your family and friends.

On October 20, the Suffolk Chapter, in conjunction with the Nassau Chapter, hosted the 9th annual Supersized Networking Event, in person at the Crest Hollow Country Club. It was so great to catch up with familiar faces and make some valuable new connections in person once again. Zoom and Microsoft Teams are great tools for staying connected but nothing compares to face to face interactions with one another. See more details about the event in the Suffolk Chapter newsletter, on page 3.

The Suffolk Chapter has several upcoming events planned. The A&A committee is hosting an all-day virtual A&A update on November 12 (newsletter page 7).

The Suffolk Chapter Tax Committee is jointly hosting a virtual all day tax conference on 12/10, which includes an excellent roster of experts covering a variety of relevant topics (newsletter page 10.)

The Forensic and Valuation Services Committee is planning to host a virtual CPE session on key aspects of business succession on December 3 (newsletter page 8).

The Suffolk Chapter will also be having it’s annual Professional Issues Update session on December 8 from 8:30-10:30am virtually, in conjunction with the Mid-Hudson and Nassau Chapters. Members will receive 2 free CPE credits and hear about some of the issues that have the greatest impact on our profession from NYSSCPA Leadership including NYSSCPA Executive Director Joanne Barry, NYSSCPA Chief Operating Officer Reva Brennan, NYSSCPA Statewide President Rumbi Bwerinofa-Petrozello, and NYSSCPA Statewide President-Elect Lynne Fuentes. See page 9 for more information and to register.

We are currently planning our annual ethics update CPE seminar in early December, presented by Ernie Smith from Nawrocki Smith. More details to come. The Chapter is also looking to set up a membership event/50th anniversary celebration in May 2022. Stay tuned for more details!

The Suffolk Chapter is also excited to announce that a winner of the George T. Foundotos CPA Memorial Undergraduate Accounting Scholarship (through the Moynihan Scholarship Fund) has been chosen and the winner will be notified and announced very shortly.

The NYSSCPA is looking for volunteers to participate in the Mentor Match program, which links experienced professionals (mentors) with less experienced professionals (mentees) or those in a career transition. This is a great program that provides mutually beneficial relationships between the mentors and mentees and helps strengthen the accounting profession as a whole. Please visit to learn more and to register as a mentor or mentee.

The NYSSCPA is also running its Member Get A Member Campaign. There are awards provided and there is a contest between Chapters on who can bring in the most new members. Let’s get Suffolk to the top! See more details on newsletter page 4.

Our community of CPAs is known for giving back to the local communities. Check out newsletter page 11 for information on the 27th Annual Toys for Tots Drive that many members in the Suffolk Chapter are participating in as we approach the holiday season. The drive benefits the U.S. Marines’ Toys for Tots program on Long Island.

I encourage all members to get involved with one of Suffolk Chapter’s many committees (newsletter page 13). Outside of the Suffolk Chapter, there are also a ton of great NYSSCPA statewide committees that you can join (newsletter page 14). A lot of these committees meet virtually, so there is no commute involved. I encourage all to explore and join some of the statewide committees as well.

The NYSSCPA Suffolk Chapter continues to be there for its members and we will continue to do our best to represent all of you. If I can be of any assistance at all or if you have an idea for an event that you would like to see the Suffolk Chapter put on for its members, please reach out to me at

I truly hope you enjoy some much needed time with those who are closest to you as we enter into the holiday season. I look forward to connecting with everyone at some point during the year at one of our upcoming events.
