Happy Holidays!

December 1, 2016

What a great year it’s been! The year seemed to fly by with all the usual activity: ABC Night, the Fall Seminar Series, the New-Licensee Reception and more. This year we’re proud to launch the new event: the After-Election Wrap Up.

All our success is because of your participation and because of our hard working board members. The chapter board’s goal is to make your CalCPA experience great.

I am hopeful you can join us for breakfast after the holidays at one of our most popular events to kick off the new year, the Economic Forecast. It will be held at the Pacific Club on Jan. 18. It’s a great event to bring clients and learn the latest.

Please see details in the event below.

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.

CalCPA Committees: Build Leadership Skills, Share Expertise

Want to use your talents at the statewide level? Your opportunity awaits—the application period will soon open to serve on our CalCPA committees for 2017-18. From estate planning to technology, and from personal financial planning to taxation, there’s a committee meeting your interests and expertise.

Please note: If you serve on a state committee and would like to continue, reapplication is necessary.

Serving on state committees allows you to work with your peers on projects that increase members’ technical knowledge, enhance the profession’s image and draw the best and brightest into accounting—all while you build leadership skills and make valuable contacts.

Keep an eye out for details about the application process. Committee appointments will be made in early 2017 and the committee term is May 1–April 30.

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.
