We’re approaching our chapter’s 54th annual Golf Tournament, which will be held on Monday, Aug. 21 and benefits the chapter’s scholarship fund.
Come out and enjoy an afternoon of networking and engaging in a little friendly competition. We provide lunch and dinner for the golfers and 18 holes of golf at the beautiful Granite Bay Golf Club. The tournament will have various contests and opportunities for players and dinner guests to support the fundraising effort. The contests include women’s and men’s long drive, closest to the hole and a hole-in-one contest. We also will feature a raffle and a “million dollar shot.” We conclude the event with a dinner reception for golfers and guests. Past scholarship winners will be volunteering throughout the day. Come meet them and support a worthy cause.

Join us for the 15th Annual Real Estate Conference that will be held at the Sutter Club in downtown Sacramento on June 14. Plan to learn the latest real estate taxation developments from expert speakers and earn CPE at the same time.
Please join us in thanking the officers, board of directors and committee chairs that guided us through 2016-17. We also will be welcoming our new 2017-18 president Bridget Sanders, her officers, board of directors and new committee chairs, as well as honoring those CalCPA members who are celebrating their 40th year with CalCPA, the Spring 2017 scholarship recipients and past chapter presidents.
This is a great opportunity to show your appreciation for the people who have worked to keep the chapter moving forward. It also will be an opportunity to meet the people who will take the chapter through the coming year. If you have ideas on the direction of our chapter, this would be a great time to talk to the incoming president, board and committee chairs.
