A busy start to fall, with more events to come


Suffolk Chapter President

Fall has come too fast, and soon the leaves will begin to change. Some accountants have recently completed items required for the Oct. 15 deadline, while others are beginning to gear up and plan for 2018 calendar-year audits.

Fall is also one of our busy seasons for networking and other events, some of which included the following:

  • On Sept. 20, the Cooperation with Bankers & Credit Committee held the End of Summer Networking event at Jewel Restaurant in Melville. This event was held in conjunction with the Nassau Chapter. It was a well-attended event at a new venue for everyone to enjoy.
  •  On Sept. 25, the Next Gen Committee held its Annual Young Professionals Golf Classic at Willow Creek and Country Club. This committee also volunteered at the Mary Brennan Inn Soup Kitchen in Hempstead. It’s great to see that this committee is so involved in giving back to our Long Island communities.
  • The Members in Industry Committee held an informative session titled “Software and Licensing Compliance and Defense.” This was a real eye-opener for individuals who just accept all terms and conditions when installing new software.

Now that most accountants are passed the major deadlines, the months of November through December tend to be our busiest ones. Below this message, you will see many different events, including education events, networking events and our required ethics CPE classes.

I hope that some of you will take the opportunity to join me and other Suffolk Chapter members at some of these great upcoming events.
