While many participated in "No Shave
November," Montovani, Murray, Nem-
phos & Tierinni (MMNT) in Manchester
took it to a whole new level with their
"Back the Beards" campaign.
On November 22, the firm held the
inaugural Beards and Beers 5K race.
Almost 230 runners, several donning
fake beards, came out to stretch their
legs, raise awareness for prostate can-
cer, and enjoy craft brews during the
post-race celebration.
Proceeds from the race and the
"Back the Beards" campaign totaled
$10,000, which benefitted the Cur-
tis D. Robinson Center for Health
Equity at Saint Francis.
MMNT's Beards and Beers 5K was
supported by organizations including
Amenta Emma Architects, BNI Min-
nechaug Chapter, The Hartford Bet-
ter Beer Company, Thomas Hooker
Brewing Company, Pioneer Beer Com-
pany, Olde Burnside Brewing Com-
pany, Randy's Wooster St. Pizza Shop,
Tongue Groove, Garaventa Photogra-
phy, Dave & Buster's, Hartford Distrib-
utors, Raymour & Flanigan Furniture,
W.B. Mason, and Guida's Dairy.

Whittlesey & Hadley, Weinstein & Anastasio Get Personal CTCPA Update
Whittlesey & Hadley and Weinstein & Anastasio hear from CTCPA Director of Finance and Operations Julie McNeal during a joint, two-day accounting and
auditing training session at the CTCPA Education Center in Rocky Hill.
In early January, Whittlesey & Hadley
(Hartford, Holyoke) and Weinstein &
Anastasio (Hamden) held a joint, two-
day accounting and auditing training
session at the CTCPA Education Center
in Rocky Hill. Whittlesey & Hadley
partner Edward Sullivan asked the
CTCPA to provide a 30-minute "Society
Issues Update" heard by approximately
140 combined staff members and
guests over the two days.
As Executive Director Art Renner was
traveling, Society Director of Finance
and Operations Julie McNeal and
Public Affairs Director Mark Zampino
teamed up to communicate the
latest on developments with the
State Board of Accountancy, the
Department of Revenue Services, the
Society's "soft skills" lecture series
visiting Connecticut universities,
an initiative to create new activities
for members aged 35 and older,
and the "Save Our State" initiative
addressing the long-term fiscal
challenges Connecticut faces.
"It was appreciated by all and helpful to
be brought up to date on the activities
of the CTCPA," Sullivan told McNeal
and Zampino in a note of appreciation.
"We also appreciate all of the efforts
both you and your staff make on behalf
of the members. There are always
challenges and opportunities that face
us and the profession. It is comforting
to know that we have an excellent
team in Connecticut working for the
needs of all CPAs."
