SCTP President

From the President


My first month as President of SCTP has gone by very quickly.  I am not sure if it is work or home (kids are back in school), but time seems to be flying by.  The August dinner meeting was a good one.  Kevan McLaughlin did a very good job speaking on Ethics. I found his presentation to be engaging and full of good information.  If you have any feedback that you would like to share with me, or anyone on the Board of Directors, please reach out to us.  We always welcome member feedback.

Our speaker for September will be Wayne Otchis, CPA.  Wayne will be covering current tax legislation and year end planning.  He will also be covering tax reform and giving us an update on the latest developments as we await the final rules on implementation of the approved Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Just a reminder that there will be no monthly dinner meeting held in October.  It is our annual policy to go dark in October as we are all busy with the extension deadline, and need a break to unwind once October 15th has passed.

As I mentioned last month, we are also always looking for new faces on the Board of Directors, so if you have an inclination to serve on the Board please stop by one of our Board meetings.  If a Board position sounds like more time than you have, you can also serve on a Committee without having to be a Board member.  Our Committee chairs are always looking for additional help and would welcome your support.

Lastly, we are putting looking into putting together some mini symposiums before the end of the year, and could use some input on topics you would like to see.  We want to make sure the information covered is timely and relevant, and the best way for us to do that is to cover topics that YOU want to hear.  So please be vocal and let us know what is on your minds!
