Message from the President

Your CCTSCPA family cares about you! Many of our members were impacted by Hurricane Harvey last month. Many have weeks and months of recovery and rebuilding ahead. We are here to help support those who need support – within our membership and within our community.

If we can help you, please let us know how and be as specific as you can be. If you know of ways we can support our community, please share those ideas with us as well. You can email me at or Melinda at

Our first CPE luncheon is on Sept. 22. Read on for registration details. At back-to-school time we also reconnect with students at the local college and universities. Read below for ways you can help a future CPA connect with CCTSCPA.

Stay tuned for ways you can help support our efforts to rebuild and restore the Coastal Bend in the coming weeks and months.
