President's Message

Happy New Year!

January 5, 2017

By Scott Donnelly

It seems like everyone is saying the same thing: This year went by fast! Now it’s time to start closing the books, reconciling inventories and sending out tax organizers. December was a busy month preparing tax projections, counting inventory and catching up with family, friends and clients.

I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I just try to focus on a couple of areas that I think need improvement. All too often they are very similar to prior years, but they are typically focused on living a healthy life and enjoying new experiences. I try to visit a different city each year in Southern California to get a little local flavor. Sometimes we spend so much time focusing on a long distance trip that we completely forget the diversity here in L.A. County.

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.


Sponsorship Opportunities

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!

If you’d like to be a sponsor, contact program associate Jackie Quinn-Piper.

Get Ready for CPA Day

Registration is open for the next CPA Day at the Capitol—Jan. 31—in Sacramento.

CPA Day is CalCPA’s kickoff event of the legislative session, where members set the groundwork for CalCPA’s advocacy efforts for the upcoming session by discussing important issues facing the CPA profession and businesses.

Make sure your voice—and that of the profession’s—is heard.


Women to Watch Awards: Know a Star?

CalCPA is looking for women who have made significant contributions to the accounting profession or who demonstrate characteristics that enable them to become leaders in the profession.

Our Women to Watch awards will be given in two categories: Experienced Leaders and Emerging Leaders. Winners will be selected by members of the Women’s Leadership Forum Planning Committee and announced at our Women’s Leadership Forum April 28.

Nomination information and applications are available online. Nomination forms are due Feb. 17.


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.
