Adair said the NYSSCPA has over 28,000 members who perform diverse functions in their jobs as CPAs. The NYSSCPA was founded in 1897, making it the oldest such organization in the U.S. Adair said a primary focus of his presidency will be to update the organization's strategic plan as it relates to public accountancy and changes to the law over the last four years.
The NextGen 2014 conference began Sunday at the Radisson Riverside Hotel and will continue Monday, before wrapping up Tuesday. It's aimed at boosting the career development of the next generation of CPAs. The focus will be on soft skills, including time management, conflict resolution, effective business communication, team building and community service. The NextGen program was launched two years ago to support young CPAs and further the organization's committment to invest in their success.
