President's Message

One Month Down!

February 1, 2017

By Scott Donnelly

I get anxious every January since it can be a bit slow. I also thrive on change. At the end of each year we brainstorm ways to make the next tax season a little more efficient. Challenging current procedures with an open mind is often productive. Our software programs are constantly changing. Sometimes we’re so overwhelmed just getting projects done that we don’t spend time reviewing new features. Involving less experienced staff can be enlightening since they don’t have old bad habits to break.

At the end of 2016 we brainstormed and created a list of options we believed would make our tax season a little smoother. After creating the list and reviewing our software we discovered there were features we were not taking advantage of that would make some of our procedures more efficient. As a result, we’re implementing a few new procedures that will hopefully reduce time and supply costs.

This committee is for public or private professionals with five-10 years of experience who are in manager, director, vice president or similar roles—or are looking to take their careers to the next level. Our committee offers events where you can learn, network and see what distinguishes an average leader from a great one. Share leadership stories, learn from others’ challenges and successes, and get a plan together that will help you advance your career.

Sponsoring an Emerging Executives event is a great way to connect with public or private professionals. As a sponsor, you will have a great opportunity to meet these professionals and promote yourself and your company. Do you have a conference room that seats at least 20-30? Inquire about in-kind sponsorship!

Behind the License

We know there’s more to your life than the tax forms, deadlines and rules and regulations that you spend time with at the office. And we want to tell your story—or the story of a member you may know.

Our monthly Final Entry feature in California CPA takes a look at the person behind the license. Over the years we’ve featured members who race carsplay in a banddevote time to nonprofit causeshave taken on physical endurance challengessurfDJ and make wine.

So, what’s your story?

If you’d like to participate or want to recommend a colleague, contact managing editor Damien English with details and we’ll set up a short interview.
