Olivia Riley is your 2016-2017 Austin CPA Chapter President

Let’s Build a Community for Future CPAs

Welcome to the beginning of our Austin Chapter’s 2016-2017 year. As we begin the journey of finding innovative ways to serve and reach members, l invite all active members to reach out to our new colleagues as well as future colleagues by inviting them to join us at a meeting or event. I would like us to strive more than ever to provide community services and excellent programs, so our members will be proud to be an important and active part of our Chapter.

The Chapter has many task forces and committees – truly something for everyone.

In the coming year, I would like us to challenge ourselves to think of ways we can better serve our community and offer events which our current members and future members will find valuable. Let’s embrace each other’s differences and uniqueness as we build up our Chapter. This is a great time to evaluate the resources we have at our disposal and make sure to use them effectively to promote the values offered to all members of our profession.

I invite all current members and potential members to attend at least one of our Board or committee meetings. Please consider attending an event; we have many options which you can find on our calendar.

I look forward to working with all members this year to take our Chapter to the next level.

Olivia Riley, CPA
