President's Message


September 30, 2015

By Jason Brenier

 To manage my time, I schedule my work events and project deadlines a month in advance so I can keep track with my target goals for the year. Let’s be honest: No matter how many times you meet your deadline, there’s always another one around the corner. So, celebrate the passing of a “job well done” after the Oc. 15 deadline by marking your calendar for our annual Fall Networking Event Oct. 29 at Phil’s BBQ. Also, don’t forget to get a jump start on your CPE hours before the end of the year by taking advantage of 20 hours of inexpensive quality continuing education locally at the 19th Annual Tax & Accounting Institute Nov. 18-20.

Finally, congratulations to our new licensees! Thank you to everyone who attended our New-Licensee Reception held at Andaz Hotel last month. It was great meeting everyone and seeing our members support the new professionals. I look forward to meeting you at future events!

  • Building awareness of FREE CalCPA student membership and benefits to students and educators;

CalCPA Committees: Build Your Leadership Skills, Share Your Expertise

Want to use your talents at the statewide level? Your opportunity awaits—the application period will open in November to serve on our CalCPA committees for 2016-17. From estate planning to technology, and from personal financial planning to taxation, there’s a committee meeting your interests and expertise.

And 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 2016 and the committee term is May 1–April 30.
