Marty Einhorn, CPA, managing shareholder with Wall, Einhorn & Chernitzer, P.C., one of this year's Leaders' Institute sponsors, shares his thoughts on this year's event:
"I had a great time at the Leaders’ Institute in Blacksburg put on by the VSCPA. I am the managing shareholder with Wall, Einhorn & Chernitzer, P.C., an 80+ person regional CPA and consulting firm in Norfolk, Virginia. This was our second year participating in the event and we continue to feel it is a great opportunity to meet the top rising accounting talent in the Commonwealth. Our firm has sponsored the Friday evening dinner the past two years and we have invited a number of our team members to participate. We have also provided several team members to serve as group leaders for the students during the weekend event.
This is a great way for our firm to gain name recognition at many of the universities around the state and to be able to interact with these students. They seem genuinely interested in our profession and obtaining any and all advice they can receive from the other participants and CPA firms represented.
Participation in the event is also a very efficient way to recruit for the future. Whether these students decide to begin their career in our market or elsewhere, we have made an impression on them and we hope they will remember our firm for future opportunities.
Thanks to the outstanding VSCPA staff for putting on a great weekend and making a rather long drive to Blacksburg more than worthwhile!"
