President's Message


Fresno Chapter College Scholarship Fund—ABC Mixer

June 26, 2015

By Kathleen Bates

 The chapter hosted another successful ABC Mixer at BMW of Fresno. The large turnout of professionals enjoyed delicious food and drinks, as well as great conversation. The decorations, including balloon masterpieces, and prize drawings added to the fun filled night. This was another great event that raised money for scholarships for the accounting students of our local universities.

If you’re reading this message and did not attend the event, please try to come to the next chapter event. Look for the e-blasts and sign up to attend as many events as you can, remembering that the net proceeds from the events go to the Fresno Chapter Scholarship Fund.

On behalf of the chapter, I would like to thank the following committee members for planning the ABC Mixer:

  • Chair Jodie Rolih
  • Jodi Nemeth (Morse, Wittwer Sampson)
  • Brian Repucci (Hemming Morse)

Wondering What ‘Grassroots’ Is?

No, this doesn’t have anything to do with the growing of your lawn, but it does have something to do with having your voice heard with legislators in our chapter. The chapter is seeking an individual interested in working with others to make CalCPA’s position known to the decision makers in the state. You can be the spark that ensures our message is delivered. If you’re interested, email Grassroots Staff Liaison Kay Coffin or call (559) 876-3800.
