President's Message Join Us!
October 2017

At the end of this month is the National Conference in Washington, DC. This will be my fourth conference that I've attended and I am really looking forward to it. Last year, in Denver, we had a meeting about what changes the members would like to see at future conferences. It'll be interesting to see what they took to heart. I know on Saturday after the morning Business meeting, the topics are all related to chapters. There will be a sesson on membership and recruiting as well as Chapter programming and promoting. I hope to come back with lots of exciting to boast our chapter.

Sunday and Monday will be back to the usual business topics. There have been always great topics and speakers in the past, so I am sure I will be learning a lot. I always feel that it's a bonus that I can get a lot of CPE credits all in one place. All those CPE credits are on one form, so there is less paper to submit when I renew my CPA license.

On Sunday night, we are doing a tour called "Monuments by Moonlight". This should be a lot of fun. I've been to Washington, DC in the past, but when you go to the monuments during the day, they always have a lot of tourists around them. I think they will look a whole lot more impressive at night.


Nicole Sheets, CPA
Board President 2017-2018
