Dear Members, Students and Candidates,
It’s an honour to lead the Chapter for the upcoming term. Time flies and it wasn’t that long ago that I attended my first Chapter student night in 2011 which led me to volunteering. I am pleased to announce the following Board for 2018/2019:
- Christine Woodington CPA, CGA – Vice Chair
- Jennifer Mui CPA, CA – Treasurer
- Stacey Lee CPA, CA– Secretary & Outreach Chair
- Rosanna Yusuf CPA, CMA – PD Chair
- Derek Johnson CPA, CMA – Social Chair
- Emily Chee CPA, CMA – Marketing Chair
A thank you to Mandeep Mann for completing her two-year term as Chair. Mandeep’s passion for volunteering set her apart. Mandeep was awarded the J.M. Macbeth Award for recognition of outstanding service at the chapter level in 2014.
2018/2019 is another exciting year for the Vancouver Chapter. The Chapter PD committee has a great fall/winter line-up on topics including: Emotional Intelligence, Succession Planning, and Psychology of Persuasion. The Social committee will be launching Networking Breakfast 2.0 and will soon kick-off the always sold-out Annual Holiday Social. And after helping UBC Farm in the spring, the Outreach Committee will be returning to complete the harvest in the fall.
Vancouver is the largest Chapter in BC with 10,000+ professionals. Kudos to our 20+ volunteers for supporting the local Chapter with such energy. A thank you to committee directors: Kevin Wan, Claudia Wang, and Leanne Wong for completing their terms as volunteers. And a special mention goes to Claudia Wang who has volunteered with the Chapter since 2007. You guys make it happen.
I look forward to seeing you at our next event.
Matthew Wong, CPA, CGA
CPABC Vancouver Chapter Chair
