For a full list of committee descriptions, please consult your directory.
Accounting and Auditing
This Committee is responsible for the planning of the two-day, 16 CPE hour Accounting and Auditing Seminar that is usually offered in May of each year.
The Tax Committee organizes the two-day, 16 CPE hour Tax Institute that occurs in August of each year. The committee considers recommendations made on evaluations submitted by participants during previous Tax Institutes and current tax issues in selecting topics. After determining the topics to be presented, committee members determine the best speaker for each topic and contact these potential speakers. We are required to offer a four-hour Ethics course every other year (odd numbered years).
Historically, this has been a major fundraiser for the Chapter so that we can give back to our members by offering an eight CPE hour Tax Update in December of each year at a minimal fee.
Business, Industry and Government, BIG Committee
The BIG Committee organizes the two-day, 16 CPE hour BIG Conference usually held in October of each year. The committee considers recommendations made on evaluations submitted by participants during previous BIG conferences and other current issues in selecting topics. After determining the topics to be presented, committee members determine the best speaker for each topic and contact these potential speakers. We are required to offer a four-hour Ethics course every other year (even numbered years).
