Third Annual Essential Event Lives Up to Its Name
By Caitlin Q. Bailey O'Neill, Assistant Editor
More than 300 participants enjoy the 2011 Essential Event at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville.
More than 300 CSCPA members, colleagues, and clients
took to the Aqua Turf Club on Monday, May 23 for the third
annual "Essential Event: The 2011 CSCPA Annual Meeting."
The four-hour educational program was packed with speak-
ers spanning the gamut from the media to forensic science
to politics, bringing together some of Connecticut's most
well-known names.
The event also marked the annual business meeting, during
which the Society's new leadership was installed. Pamela
Q. Weaver
, a Burlington sole practitioner, University of
Hartford adjunct professor, and frequent Connecticut CPA
contributor, was presented with the first annual Jack Brooks
Leadership Award. The award was named in memory of
Jack Brooks, CSCPA executive director from 1964 to 1996,
who passed away on August 29, 2010.
