President's Message

Happy New Year!

January 5, 2017

By David W. Taklender

 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.

Post-Tax Day Golf Invitational

It’s that time of year again! On your mark, get set, sign up for the 3rd annual Post-Tax Day “Get a Grip” Golf Outing, taking place at noon, April 19 at Riverwalk.   

LevitZacks and Hearthstone are back as lead sponsors along with CalCPA and we’d love for you to join us as we celebrate the end of another tax season.  Our outing is super fun and laid back. Whether you’re an avid golfer or completely new to golf, it’s no big deal either way.  Another “plus”: this outing is quick. Last year we finished the “scramble” format round in about four hours. Pretty much unheard of in the golf world!  

If you are in, REGISTER TODAY!  Early Bird Pricing is only available for the first 36 players! And, registrations are limited.
You can expect a rollicking good time with fellow professionals, including CPA’s, EA’s, attorneys, financial advisors, bankers, risk professionals and others while also enjoying 18 holes of golf at beautiful Riverwalk Golf Course.
Hope to see you in April!
Bryan Carpenter

Women to Watch Awards: Know a Star?

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.

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.
