Tax Season has ended, and we can all breathe a sigh of relief–but before that an apology is needed. You may have noticed some months of The Accountant have been missing your Chapter News. With all that has been going on in life and in taxes (a stepped up deadline for 1099 filings and calendar year partnerships), I needed 32 hours in a day to get it all done, and as you know there are only 24; thus something had to give. Please accept my sincere apologies. I am thankful for the assistance of Candace Cansler in getting the news out for me when I could get it to her. This has been one of the busiest busy seasons I ever can remember almost to the point of insanity at times. I know we have not been in communication nearly as much with our friends, colleagues, and fellow chapter members, but now that tax season is over we should all take time to relax and reconnect. A good place to start is your chapter meeting, and in June we will have our 70th Convention where we all will gather to celebrate our society and the important role it plays in the accounting profession of our state.
