San Diego Chapter
A blog for and by a community of professionals

What a great chapter we have! In August, I was excited to tell you about Steve Wimmers and David Kvendru, who received recognition at the CalCPA Council meeting in June for their contributions to the profession and community. I’m now thrilled to share that at last month’s council meeting, Bryan Carpenter, our chapter YEP of the Year, was named one of three finalists for CalCPA YEP of the Year. In addition, Bryan—along with Paul Scott and Andrew Stocker—became the newest graduates of the CalCPA Leadership Institute. Way to make our chapter proud!
If you know anyone who deserves recognition for service to the community or profession, please let us know before March 28.
As we look to a new year, we’d like to hear your ideas about topics and events that would be of interest. Please send your ideas and suggestions to program associate Cindy Holcomb before the busy season gets any busier! We’re here to serve you.
Circle Nov. 19-21 on your calendar for our 18th Annual San Diego Tax & Accounting Institute, the region’s premier opportunity for tax professionals to hear the recent developments in federal, state and local tax and accounting issues. Get timely updates on tax legislation and the impact to firms and clients. You’ll get to choose from several breakout sessions focused on tax or accounting, as well as participate in general sessions and keynote speakers. Once again, Russ Sullivan will be our keynote speaker.
The nomination period for CalCPA’s annual service awards is open through March 28. You can download and nominate an outstanding member or firm for the:
- Public Service Award, which is given to a CPA who has been especially active in service to the profession and community.
- Distinguished Service Award, which is granted either on the basis of long and distinguished service or for some singular act resulting in extraordinary contribution to the profession, CalCPA and/or the community.
Make your nominations today.
