We chose the name “CPA Café” because we hope this blog will serve as a forum for Virginia CPAs to openly and casually discuss current issues affecting the workplace and the CPA profession.
I am also excited to use this blog as a means to update Virginia CPAs on the news and information I hear as I travel around the state and the nation, gathering insights from practitioners, regulators, educators, state CPA societies, the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and other key players.
We have guest bloggers lined up to visit the Café and offer their thoughts on several issues as well, from international standards and technology to recruiting top talent and work/life balance.
Additionally, consider this blog a forum to voice your personal opinions and ideas and to introduce new topics we may not be covering. Visit the blog to stay current on top issues and learn what’s on your colleagues’ minds, but feel free to actively participate as well. Submit comments on the issues that are important to you in order to generate meaningful dialog with your peers — or submit a post yourself. (To submit a blog post, simply e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Blog guidelines and etiquette are posted in the menu to the left.)
I look forward to sharing my experiences and ideas with you. But I look forward to hearing your thoughts and responses even more. Welcome to the CPA Café! Let’s get the conversation started.
