2020 - A year of working with COVID-19 Restrictions

2020 was a difficult year for everyone.  The Garbelman Winslow Family spends a lot of time together and this year we had to make a lot of changes in order to adapt to the mandated COVID-19 restrictions.  50% of the staff started working remotely so to reduce the number of employees that were in the office at one time.  Thankfully we had the technology and processes already in place to make the transition to remote work pretty painless.  

We normally have several office functions during the year but had to cancel some. In order to try and keep connected with each other we hosted a virtual cocktail hour once a week where we played games through zoom and just caught up with everyone.  We also created a "water cooler" chat room in Microsoft teams where we posted silly pictures and stories that were not related to work. And sometimes we picked up the phone and called each other just to say hi.  

 We were able to host our annual Halloween Party which some of the staff were able to attend and even dressed up.  We did not take a group picture due to COVID-19 restrictions but here is a picture that one of our staff members, Lori Walker put together with everyone's individual pictures.

We were also able to have a holiday party (well, three actually since we couldn't have more than 10 people in the building at a time).  Everyone wore their best Christmas sweaters (and masks), we did a Christmas sock exchange and secret Santa.  Each party had a theme with decorations and food (for example, we had a Country Christmas theme with BBQ and all the fixings' and rustic decorations).

Senator Brian Feldman, one of only two CPA's currently serving in the General Assembly presents Kimberly Ellison-Taylor with the honor.


Record turnout as MACPA members invade Annapolis for CPA Day

Maryland's lawmakers returned to Annapolis on January 11, 2017.  Maryland's CPAs arrived this week, and if the 2017 edition of CPA in Annapolis is any indication, it's going to be a memorable General Assembly session.

A record number of CPAs-nearly 250 in all- turned out on January 26, 2016 to help protect their profession.  They spoke with lawmakers, explained the impact that various issues would have on Maryland's business community, and did wat too fee citizens do these days; They got involved.  They took a stand. They raised their voices.


Happy Holidays from Garbelman Winslow CPAs!!!
