MACPA Business & Industry Roundtable - August 2011


Published on

What's keeping financial professionals up at night? MACPA got 30+ CFOs, controllers and other financial professionals from NFPs & Gov't together in a roundtable.

They heard from AICPA's Board member, Tom Foard (also a CFO) and MACPA's incoming chair, Anoop Mehta (also a CFO) and MACPA's chair of Biz/Ind, Joselin Martin (also a CFO) and then worked to identify the biggest issues and what MACPA can do to help.

  11. What can MACPA do to help? The group identified areas that MACPA could help CFOs, controllers and financial professionals deal with the pressing issues. One major idea was to have quarterly roundtables focused on one of these main issues with a facilitated discussion afterwards. Most of the key issues were already being dealt with by MACPA. The group emphasized the importance of continued advocacy at the federal, state, and state board areas.
  12. RefelctionsThere is a certain felling of relief when you know that you are facing the same issuesas others in your Profession. That was definitely the feeling at the end of thisroundtable. It was almost therapeutic having engaging discussions with otherfinancial professionals.
