By the time you read this, the 2013 filing season will have drawn to a close. We can reflect on all of the early mornings and late nights we worked to prepare the many tax returns, and how we endured the back-to-back client appointments. And who can forget the painstaking wait for the final K-1 to get things wrapped up. For the many tax season warriors out there, a vacation or a chance to catch up with family—and a return to a normal work schedule—are signs that we have made it through another year. Congratulations to all! I hope tax season 2013 was a rewarding and successful one for you.
As you begin to think about the rest the year—or life after tax season—I want to tell you about a few of the things we have coming up for this next year in the chapter. First off, I want to introduce our board members and officers for this coming year. The directors this year are: Garry Browning, Catherine Chan, Ken Couvillion, Marissa Dotinga, Preston Osbourn and Sanjeev Singh. The officers are: Sheril Imfeld (past president), Chad Van Houten (secretary/treasurer), Natalya Galindo (vice president) and me, your chapter president. I want to say a special thanks to Rich Cline, Chrissy Stiles, Chris Weed and Cynthia Guererro, who have spent the last few years on the serving on the board and are “retiring.” Moreover, we have many committee chairs that have volunteered for this next year, and we’re looking forward to meeting them at the planned events.
