As the 2010–2011 membership year draws to a close, I want to thank you for your membership and support this year. Your dedication has enabled us to enhance our products and services to meet your needs and protect CPAs’ interest — from advocating for you at the state and national level to getting you access to online CPE vendors that provide the CPE credits you need at the prices and convenience you want. They say that TEAM stands for “Together Everyone Achieves More.” That couldn’t be truer of the VSCPA.
In fact, I think Andrew Martin, a VSCPA member from Chesapeake and “Top 5 Under 35” award winner, said it best earlier this year:
“I think it’s important to support the CPA community. You can get more accomplished as a group than any single person can on their own.”
But, I think there’s something that’s even better than collectively achieving great things for the CPA profession. It’s helping our communities in the process. I’m so proud of the more than 600 CPAs who rolled up their sleeves during our CPA Day of Service on September 24 and of the CPAs who serve their employers and clients everyday by providing sound financial services and advice. These acts of service are what make me so proud to be a part of the VSCPA.
Because of your dedication, the VSCPA membership has never been stronger. This year, we exceeded 10,000 members — an important milestone in the VSCPA’s history and a testament to the commitment, character and quality of our professional community.
As our new membership year begins, I hope you will continue your dedication to the VSCPA and the CPA profession by renewing your membership with us. Membership renewal officially begins on May 1, but our online renewal system is ready for those who would like to renew now. (Site login required.)
Thanks, again, for your membership this year. I’m looking forward to a great year in 2011–2012. I hope you are, too.
