Great Day With The OSCPA

IMG_1023Yesterday, it was my pleasure and honor to part of a new Committee for The Ohio Society of CPAs – The Women’s Initiatives Committee.

If you are a member of OSCPA, I hope you read the article in Ohio CPA Voice ¬†about a survey conducted last fall to determine interest in a women’s initiative for the state society. You can read it here, in the December issue.

The survey response was amazing, a 19.6% response rate (which is huge) and 350 members said they were willing to volunteer to help in some aspect of the OSCPA Women’s Initiatives program or events.

The Board approved the establishment of the Committee, we met yesterday and we’re off and running.

A special treat for me, and the other members of the committee, was the opportunity to meet Scott Wiley, our new President and CEO of the Ohio Society of CPAs.

Probably like many of you (members of the Ohio Society), I was curious about this new guy in town and how he will fare filling the big shoes of Clarke Price (retiring CEO who had been in place for 22 years).

Wiley joined us first thing to meet us, welcome us and stress his support for this new initiative. He also shared lunch with us and to get to know us better, ask for our insights and share some of the steps in his new adventure. Bottom line… I was impressed by his charm, professionalism and willingness to engage with us.

AND yes, he agreed to a picture – – Scott Wiley – new OSCPA CEO – is that you with Rita?
