Happy New Year to all of our CalCPA members and their families! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday break and created some memories in the process. We had a fantastic holiday party at Club M and I want to thank everyone who attended and made the event a great success.
Congratulations again to the 2016 scholarship winners and a huge debt of gratitude to First Lieutenant Canelli and the USMC for their service and for bringing the Toys for Tots program to our holiday party every year.

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.
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.
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 cars, play in a band, devote time to nonprofit causes, have taken on physical endurance challenges, surf, DJ 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.
