One of the most significant benefits the pandemic created was the necessity to be adaptable and able to embrace change. As a board, we recently shook things up in how we had our July Board Meeting. Instead of our regular morning meeting, we moved it later in the day and had a happy hour. We scrapped some of the more formal voting/approving and turned it into a chapter update and social gathering. We also invited anyone interested in attending.
It was an awesome event! We had lots of new faces, and the evening flew by. Those who attended could connect with new colleagues, and those not currently involved with CalCPA were excited to hear about the opportunities to get involved. One of our main goals this year is to get some new people involved with our Chapter’s leadership; this event was a great start. I’m looking forward to building on this event and seeing what comes in the future.
If you’re interested in getting involved, please reach out and keep an eye out for future events of this nature. We’d love for you to connect and see how CalCPA can help you and how you can help CalCPA and the accounting profession in the Inland Empire.
