One of the 2011-2012 initiatives of the CSCPA Advisory
Council and Board of Directors is to enhance the Society's
interaction with other relevant professions. Thanks in large
part to the work of Advisory Council member Robert
Boudreau
and Connecticut Bar Association member
Matthew Beatman
, the CSCPA and the Connecticut Bar
Association's (CBA) Commercial Law and Bankruptcy
Section and Commercial Finance Committee co-hosted a
special "attorney/CPA" networking dinner on November 17
at New Haven's Quinnipiack Club.
The meeting opened with a social hour/cocktail recep-
tion, followed by dinner. Speakers included CSCPA
members Armand Rossi
and Matthias "Matt"
Strilbyckij
, both of Konowitz, Kahn & Company on
"Recent Changes in GAAP Principles and Revisions to
Loan Documents" and CBA members Sandra K.
Partridge
and Thomas J. Welsh on "Alternative Dispute
Resolution in Commercial Finance Transactions."
Approximately 40 individuals participated in the event,
and the positive audience reaction validated the relevance
of the topics.
