Hello San Joaquin Chapter! My name is Andrew Le, and I will serve as the Chapter President for the upcoming fiscal year. Through my time with CalCPA to date, I have been amazed by the talented professionals in our field and the wide range of specializations they cover. I hope to be able to serve you in aligning CalCPA’s state and chapter resources to support all of you.
At the state level, CalCPA is continuing to focus on professional development and building out a pipeline for new professionals. Committees composed of representatives from all chapters in the state will collaborate to centralize technical content and CPE. This will give us access to knowledge from a larger pool of experts than our own chapter, gaining more opportunities to learn.
Throughout all this, I hope our chapter events will be a means of socializing with professional peers. Each event will be a chance to learn from sharing experiences without the trappings of a formal learning environment. We will continue to have opportunities to learn on an ad hoc basis, but my vision for our chapter is to use our events as a means of introducing balance into our professional lives. Leave the technical focus to our day-to-day routine and leave the professional development to the state events. Here, we enjoy food and drinks while socializing with fellow professionals. I look forward to having a great year with all of you.
