Marca Gibson, MSCPA Board President
This is a warm and heartfelt greeting to every member of MSCPA in this new year of 2021! I’m sure many of you have been busy gathering CPE attendance certificates and catching up the NASBA database. I keep my CPE folder very organized, but I never seem to log into NASBA until year-end. I guess real-time uploading should be one of my New Year’s resolutions! Thankfully, MSCPA offers the wonderful member benefit of uploading all MSCPA-sponsored CPE credits, so we don’t have to do it all! It’s only a matter of those random AICPA or other outside courses to catch up on one’s own.
Another great member benefit and part of our strategic effort of “Connection” is the Find-a-CPA database at http://www.MSCPA.org. Have you updated your profile lately? Have you uploaded a photo of yourself? I’ve been thinking a lot about feeling connected to colleagues and long-distance friends during this era of social distancing and remote learning. With new members joining every month, the Find-a-CPA database would be a great way to extend and refresh our ties, in addition to helping the public connect with qualified trusted advisors. Even if you are not in public practice, I encourage you to participate in Find-a-CPA. It can be mutually beneficial to reach out to a colleague! Will you take me up on this challenge? Log into your account, click on Find-a-CPA, search your own name, and click to “Edit it Now”. Not there? To create a new profile, click on Members, Update My Profile, and Enroll in Find-a-CPA.
Best wishes as we jump into year-end payroll and financial reporting cycles and another busy tax season! Happy Housekeeping
