What are you doing to make a difference in the profession, your community, the world? I am on the board of the Silicon Valley/San Jose chapter of the California Society of CPAs and am the immediate past president of this board. I organize and attend several events throughout the year for the benefit of my fellow CPAs.
One of my favorite speakers is Garrett Dailey, Esq. He is able to make case law fun and exciting and breaks complex issues down into easily understandable pieces.
