HSCPA 58th Annual Conference - It's A Jungle Out There!
It was Jumanji mania in accounting at the 58th Annual Conference on June 22, 2018 at the Prince Waikiki. From the traditional HSCPA opening to an informative professional issues update by AICPA past chair Tim Christen to data and cyber security with Nick Graf ... and that was only the first half of the Conference! A fulfilling and ono lunch buffet was sponsored by long-time corporate sponsor, American Savings Bank - thank you, Gabe Lee! The installation of the the 2018-2019 officers and directors was handled by the 'lion tamer and leader of the pack', Tim Christen. Thank you to all for being good sports and tame animals! Heavy-duty afternoon sessions included Chris Van Marter, senior deputy prosecuting attorney, who outlined how certain financial fraud cases were committed in Hawaii - unbelievable! Wrapping up the Conference were our expert Tax Trio: Ron Heller, Kurt Kawafuchi and Tom Yamachika - who always deliver timely and useful information.
MAHALO to our sponsors: American Savings Bank, ADP, Ceridian, Mutual of America and Thomson Reuters for their continued support of the HSCPA!
