Key Takeaways from MSATP’s Facebook Live: Meet Your President Elect

It’s our favorite time of the week! Another great episode of MSATP’s Facebook Live series is up and running and you’ll want to check it out ASAP to get caught up on all the latest happenings in the tax and accounting world. Here’s a quick preview of what you can expect to learn more about on last week’s show.

We had the pleasure of welcoming onto the show MSATP’s Vice President and President Elect, Ellen Silverstein to talk a little bit about her past and what she has planned during her upcoming tenure. Ellen joined MSATP in 1990 and credits her membership with helping her streamline her accounting business and giving her the flexibility to balance work with raising her children. During her time with MSATP, Ellen has been an integral component of our educational committee, where she has organized class itineraries and seminars, coordinated guest speakers and provided insight as a practicing professional as to what types of learning opportunities would be most helpful to our members. Ellen will be inducted as MSATP President on May 24th for the 2018-2019 term. Some of her plans include attracting and maintaining relationships with corporate sponsorships to add value to MSATP members, continuing and enhancing the Facebook Live channel and organizing networking events to enable our members in order to expand their practices and take their careers to the next level. Additionally, given the dynamic nature of the upcoming tax year, thanks to the impending legislatively-implemented changes, Ellen recommends attending as many CPE-related events as possible to both assist your clients and reduce your stress levels.

Next, we welcomed on Megan Roth from MileIQ (taxpros@mileiq.com) to discuss an exciting new app you can use to augment your practice and communicate to your clients that you are the consummate professional prepared to address any of their needs or concerns.
