President's Message

It has been an honor to serve as your President

April 18, 2016

By Tom O’Sullivan

EB_Pres_Tom_Osullivan1516WEBThis is my final President’s bulletin. I cannot believe that the year is coming to a quick close. I am grateful for the opportunities to meet so many wonderful people. Our chapter has provided opportunities for education, networking and government relations.

I want to especially thank the Board and the Committee Chairs, who were incredibly supportive, provided great ideas and execution.

Also, a great thank you to Soco Davenport, CalCPA’s Program Manager. She provides an incredible guidance and support in operating the chapter.

On May 17th, there is an Installation event for the incoming President, Joe Kovar of Kovar Sweeney, his Board and the Committee Chairs. It will be held at the Oakland A’s game. Please show your support by joining us for this fun and exciting event.

I want to encourage everyone to attend a CalCPAs event, join a committee and the chapter leadership.

It has been an honor to serve as your President!!!
Your support of CalCPA, the CPA profession and CPA-PAC is extremely valued!

The “Most Interesting Man…” at the Installation!

There’s a rumor in the sports world that the “most interesting man in baseball” might just be A’s pitcher Sean Doolittle. Per this coach’s report: “Sean is a goofball …very intelligent. His sense of humor is different … probably one of the biggest-hearted people around. He’s a giver … one of the best people in baseball, period.” Our Installation will be at O.Co Coliseum on May 17 when the A’s play the Rangers. If he is not pitching, you may not see Sean; however, you can meet another most interesting man: Incoming Chapter President Joe Kovar. Joe is not a “goofball” but he is very intelligent, has his own sense of humor and, along with his leadership team, make up a group of most interesting men and women! So, hurry and register for this fun event and meet our interesting leaders who make things happen in our chapter. Invite colleagues, family and friends, and connect and re-connect with other professionals. And, who knows, you might also meet the most interesting man in all of baseball!

Discounts are available for children under 17 and members who are students, candidates or professionals licensed less than 5 years. Ballpark buffet and beverages are included in the price of admission.
