"The Tommy Adaptive Story"

For over 30 years, Tommy Hilfiger has brought classic, American, cool apparel to consumers around the world. From its start, inclusivity and democratization of fashion have been at the core of the brand's DNA. Today, Tommy Hilfiger's newest collection, Tommy Adaptive, continues to build on that vision, empowering people with disabilities to express themselves through fashion.

On Wednesday, May 16th, Gary Sheinbaum, Chief Executive Office of Tommy Hilfiger Americas joined us at the Union League Club to discuss the success story of the brand and the launch of the Tommy Adaptive clothing line.

Barry Melancon, President & CEO, AICPA

"Summit on the State of the Accounting Profession"

Automation. Blockchain Technology. Offshoring. Cybercrime. Workspace Diversity. Tax Reform.

These and many other factors will ensure that the work you do tomorrow will not be quite the same as the work you do today. What does it all mean? Where is it all going? How should you prepare to adapt?

Nobody is better qualified to answer these questions than Barry C. Melancon. Mr. Melancon is the longest-serving CEO of the AICPA and has done much to strengthen both the organization and the profession as a whole. He also happens to be an incredibly engaging and informative speaker. You won't want to miss his observations, insights and advice - or the chance to mingle and converse with other leaders in the profession.

The Accountants Club of America fosters the exchange of ideas to enhance the development and growth of the profession. We encourage the professional development of our members to better serve their clients and the community.

  • It was exhilarating to hear Gary Sheinbaum, CEO of Tommy Hilfiger speak about the vision of Tommy Adaptive.  The physically challenged have long been a neglected group in our inclusive society.  For the Tommy Hilfiger brand with it’s cool celebrity vibe to get behind creating not just clothing for the physically challenged but with the planning and vision to recognize them with a special clothing line that truly speaks of sensitivity as well as cool fashion will have far reaching impact in how our society views physical disabilities.

  • 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”

  • “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!”
