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.
