Since my last update, we’ve had three of our premier events of the year take place: The ABC Event, which was a tremendous success; the Annual Golf Tournament, which also helped generate scholarships on par with last year’s record-setting number; and the Student Event, which was a wonderful time encouraging students to help in their pursuit of graduation and entering the accounting profession.
All three events built on the momentum that we, as a chapter, have been able to garner over the past two years. That, paired with some changes at the state level of CalCPA, positions our Chapter in a beautiful space to continue evolving and generating the value our members are always searching for. The state has given us some flexibility with funding to try new things and spend some dollars in new ways that I’m excited about. So be on the lookout—the business climate is changing as fast as ever, and our chapter is as well. New things will be coming. It’s an exciting time for the IE Chapter of CalCPA.
