  • December 6, 2018 Author’s Panel Discussion – Becky Livingston was a panelist at this event. “It was fun. Thank you for the invite and here’s to a wonderful (and nice!) New Year.”
  • December 6, 2018 Author’s Panel Discussion – Mr. Cohn was the Moderator of this event. “Thanks for hosting us at the Accountants Club of America, Michael. I agree with Hitendra. It was a pleasure and honor to be part of this event.”
  • Jeffrey Thomson Event on October 2, 2017 ~ “Thank you very much for your most generous invitation to yesterday’s luncheon sponsored by the Accountants Club of America! It is quite a group! I spoke to leaders in both accounting firms and financial institutions as well as a retiree who now has time to hike in interesting places. I confessed I hiked the Camino in Spain. This group can certainly refute the notion that accountants are boring bean counters. I was also fascinated by Jeffrey Thomson’s presentation. His information could not have been any more timely for me”

    Joan Schultz


  • Thanks so much for sending me the photo in the mail of Ed Mendlowitz, Walt Frazier and the young accountants from Withum. It was truly a memorable event!

    Michael Cohn

    Editor-in-Chief, AccountingToday.com, Source Media

  • “One of the primary reasons I joined the Accountants’ Club was the interesting array of events and speakers that they host throughout the year.  It is important to realize and then to understand how current events and other industries work to shape the accounting profession, presenting opportunities for new service lines within our field.  Even the recent event with Barry Melancon of the AICPA touched on the technological advances within the profession, what future accountants are expecting, and the potentially significant impact that the new presidency may have on accounting and reporting regulations – all very relevant to running a successful practice!”

    Ashleigh Wessing

    Senior Manager, Financial Advisory Services, Marks Paneth

  • The Accountants Club of America is a great asset in being able to attract Barry Melancon, the AICPA CEO, and other thought leaders of the industry. The recent breakfast casts the club in the best light possible.
