This past week I had the honor of keynoting the national convention of the National Association of Black Accountants in Las Vegas. It was even more special when MACPA member Tysheba Morgan, CPA, CIA, MBA, won the award for NABA Chapter President of the Year for her work with the Baltimore Chapter.
Tysheba is a Senior Manager in Accounting at Exelon Corporation’s Commercial Businesses in Baltimore. Pictured after receiving her award is Tysheba (second from right) next to NABA Vice Chairman, Steven Harris (far right). Left to right are more MACPA members, Tony King, Tanyeka Aelxander, Kimberly Ellison-Taylor (Vice-Chair elect of the AICPA and past-chair of MACPA) and yours truly.
The subject of the NABA Conference was “Bridging the Generation Gap” and that was the subject of my keynote (see preso below). I am declaring 2015 the year we end this generational conflict and start working together. In fact I believe that true inclusion of our people and collaboration can bridge this divide and amplify the strengths that all generations and all of us can bring to the table.
