Message from the President
Jeff Smith
Jeff Smith, CPA
Summer brought a surprise and opportunity for change to CCTSCPA. Our traditional meeting venue, the Town Club, closed its doors in mid-June sending your leadership on the hunt for a new location for our 2015-16 programs. After obtaining proposals from several local venues, we are in the final steps of completing a contract with the Ortiz Center for the majority of our CPE luncheons. Our first luncheon will be on September 11. We hope you’ll be there to check out our new luncheon location!

The other top item on our summer agenda is the update of our popular membership directory. Please be sure to respond to the data confirmation email you received and submit any updates or new photos by July 31. We’re also happy to welcome any new advertisers who you think would benefit from reaching our members. Details can be found below.

Thank you for your continued support as a member of CCTSCPA!

CCTSCPA Honors TSCPA’s 100th Anniversary
Corpus Christi will be well-represented in the halls of the Society office in Dallas. This is thanks to a new painting presented by past-chapter president and TSCPA Executive Board member Jerry Spence at the TSCPA Annual Meeting of Members. The gift was painted by local artist Dinah Bowman and given in honor of TSCPA’s 100th Anniversary.
