Hello, Bakersfield Chapter members! My name is Valerie Adams, and it's my privilege to serve as your Chapter president from May 2022 to April 2023. My involvement with CalCPA began as a 2017-18 Board of Directors member and I’ve since served as either a CalCPA board member or officer for the Bakersfield Chapter. I’ve happily found my commitment to CalCPA leadership both rewarding and challenging.
Reconnecting with current members along with recruiting new members is a primary focus of our Bakersfield Chapter in the upcoming year. Thanks to those members in attendance at our recent Installation Reception on May 18–great seeing everyone! The Bakersfield Chapter’s agenda for the upcoming Summer and Fall offers events for all types of members including a Bowling Social at BLVD in July, YEP Speed Mentoring, Firm Tours and Student Night in September, and a top-notch ABC Mixer in October—post-tax season deadline, of course.
Please regularly check our chapter website for continued updates; we look forward to seeing everyone soon!
