President's Report

As the newly elected Chapter President, I’d like to say thank you for entrusting me with this responsibility.  I had no aspiration to be Chapter President when I joined the Chapter a few years back.  However, I am very thankful that past Chapter leadership encouraged me to get involved.  My experience has certainly been positive.  I’ve made many good friends and learned so much from our members. 


Your board has great plans for 2018.  We’ve begun revamping our Business Partner program.   Updates are being made to the form and function of our website.  Plans are being discussed for Chapter socials and other events.  Great educational sessions are being planned.  A membership directory and Business Partner directory are in the works.  This is going to be a great year!  I encourage each of you to take full advantage of this great community.  Our members and Business Partners collectively have such a wealth of experience and knowledge.  Be sure you are taking full advantage of those resources. 


Thank you again for the opportunity to serve as your Chapter President.  If any of you have ideas that you believe would enhance the value of our Chapter, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any of our board members.

Vice-President's Report

The new year has proven to be busier than usual for the accounting world with The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that President Trump signed into law at the end of 2017. In addition to working in two years (you accounting folks understand), I have been analyzing expenses and trying to determine the changes needed in the overall accounting and tracking of expenditures.  Meals, entertainment, parking, and club dues are just a few expenses that will need to be accounted for differently than in previous years. To assist in your understanding of the changes, plan to attend our monthly meeting on Tuesday where you will hear from Donna Bruce and Michael Hill with BKD on the largest tax reform legislation in more than three decades. I look forward to seeing you at the Capital Club on Tuesday!
