The New Year is a great time to reflect on the highlights and learnings from the prior year. This is where social media can play a great supporting role. Facebook gave me my year in review, which actually was helpful in remembering the events from this past year. A review of our blog posts over the past year added some depth and perspective. My Storify library has a lot of recaps, and you can see many of my presentations (and where I have been) on my Slideshare account. Our videos are on MACPA and BLI YouTube accounts. Together, these paint a picture of what we are up to at MACPA and BLI.
This look back covers just some of the highlights from 2014.
We ended 2013 with our declaration that 2014 would be the Year of the Sticky Note and our holiday video and post that generated 33,000-plus views!
We actually started out 2014 in December 2013 at our Board Retreat. Led by our chair, Marianela Del Pino-Rivera, we decided as an organization to make the Shift Change (see my related LinkedIn post with almost 30,000 views) and share our journey with members.
Our year-end message to members included our three watchwords for 2014 – proactive, innovative, collaborative.
We also continued to make headlines. Here’s a look at MACPA and BLI in the news.
One of my highlights was the release of a video that I believe captures the MACPA’s purpose and the essence of all CPAs.
We started the year at the AICPA / CPA-SEA conference to share the latest trends and issues facing our members, the AICPA, and our colleagues in other states.
We ended 2014 with our sequel to the “sticky note” video and a new theme of communication.
2014 was a good year, and we look forward to an even better 2015!
Wishing all of you a happy New Year!
