MACPA HONORS WOMEN LEADERS WITH THE FIRST WOMEN TO WATCH AWARDS –

MACPA Chair Marianela del Pino-Rivera and AICPA Chair-elect Tommye Barie hosted the first Women to Watch Awards breakfast on Sept. 23, 2014.

Past MACPA board member Samantha Bowling, Partner at Garbelman Winslow CPAs, chaired the Task Force that developed the program as part of the AICPA's national initiatives on women, diversity and inclusion.

The first year set the bar high with an impressive number of nominations (32) and winners in two categories -- Emerging Leaders and Experienced Leaders.

Pictured above are Tommye Barie, Samantha Bowling and Marianela del Pino-Rivera with the nominees in the Emerging Leaders Category.

Pictured above are Tommye Barie, Samantha Bowling and Marianela del Pino-Rivera with the nominees in the Experienced Leaders Category.

The winners are:

Pictured above are from left to right: Experienced Leader Winner - Lexy Kessler,CPA, Partner at Aronson LLC; Tommye Barie, AICPA Chair-Elect; Emerging Leader Winner - Aileen Eskildsen, CPA, Director at Ellin & Tucker; Marianela del Pino-Rivera, MACPA Chair; Experienced Leader Winner – Tammy Schneider, CPA, Principal at Glass, Jacobson; Emerging Leader Winner - Elise Brouillette, CPA, Data Assurance Manager at PWC

This program was also supported by the AICPA and its national Women to Watch program. The event also included a special announcement from past MACPA Chair Anoop Mehta: the formation of a special minority scholarship in the name of the Mehta family and the first award to Tanyeka Alexander from the University of Baltimore.

The top woman in accounting, incoming AICPA Chair Tommye Barie, CPA, CGMA, offered some inspiration. She made the point that while we have made progress on diversity and inclusion in the CPA profession, we still have a way to go. She commended our MACPA leadership for taking on this very important issue. Then she offered three keys to success in her life:

  • 1. Embrace opportunities that are outside your comfort zone. That’s the best way to learn new things. Stretch yourself.
  • 2. Aim high. My message here is, "Don't settle." You have choices in life. Be bold, be brave and be diligent about what you want.
  • 3. Lead by example. Create a culture of leadership by showing that you're willing to put in at least as much effort as anyone else. Be an equal partner with your team and other colleagues. Roll up your sleeves, work late, and even work through the weekend if that’s what it takes to accomplish the task at hand.

 

She closed with this:

"I leave you with this quote by Dr. Shad Helmstetter. 'You may think that in life, a lot of things happen to you along the way. The truth is, in life, you happen to a lot of things along the way.' In my mind, this statement exemplifies how you build a career. You are the one to make things turn out the way they do. From choosing a career you love to striving to be the best you can be and seizing all the opportunities available, you make your success happen."

Congratulations to all of the nominees and award winners!

A record number of MACPA members turned out to meet with their legislators and debate issues that impact CPAs and their clients. From a standpoint of protecting the profession, itÂ’s the most important event of the year. The more CPAs who invade Annapolis every January, the louder our voices become - and the better our legislators understand the financial impact of the decisions they make during session.
