One of the Dallas CPA Society’s most treasured organizations for giving is Love for Kids. Each year the DCPAS helps drive this great organization by providing volunteers for the Margarita Ball, sorting toys and providing coats for needy children at the annual Love for Kids Christmas party.
In that regard, the DCPAS and The Margarita Society are currently seeking volunteers
for the 35th Annual Margarita Society Ball which will be held on November 19, 2011. The Dallas CPA Society has played an active role in the success of the Margarita Ball each year by providing volunteers and would like to again help meet this need as it has in years past. Separately, the Dallas CPA Society also needs volunteers to help with sorting toys
on November 20, 2011. Anyone who has ever attended or participated in either of these events can attest to the magnitude and impressive scale of the entire operation. In addition, these are both great opportunities to network, volunteer and have a few margaritas at the same time. Those interested should contact Laura McFadden at 972/960-8311 or email@example.com
On a separate note, our Professional Connections Committee made its debut this month with a networking event at the Hard Rock Café. The networking event was held with the Dallas Bar Association. The Committee is working on other events for this year, including a networking luncheon that will feature professionals working in the nonprofit area. The Committee is led by Janae Chamblee and Jonathan March, a recent graduate from the Dallas CPA Society Leadership Development Academy.
In addition, last month The Dallas Business Journal
and its panel of judges completed the voting process for the CFO of the Year awards. The Dallas Business Journal’s 2011 CFO of the Year Awards Luncheon
and Panel Event will be held on October 20, 2011, and is open to the public. Two members of the Dallas CPA Society served as judges on this year’s panel. Please note that this event draws a large attendance, so seats are limited. For more information and to register please log on to http://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/event/37291
There are several significant upcoming events in the next couple of months as we approach the holiday season, so stay tuned. We again appreciate our members and the volunteers who help make our organization one of the largest and most successful of its kind in Texas.
