Greetings! Thank you for electing me as your chapter president and trusting me to lead our chapter in helping make your CalCPA membership more relevant. We have a great team of officers, directors and committee chairs that will be charged with that objective.
My theme this year: “A CPA is Your Trusted Adviser.” This theme applies to those of us in private industry, government and education, as well as those of us in public practice.

We also adapt to the changing times in economics and technology to improve and enhance our value to the public and our colleagues.
