HSCPA 62nd Annual Conference: Value Kindness
We'll be back in person! Yes, it's the 'social' Annual Conference that you're accustomed to on Friday, November 18th at the Prince Waikiki Hotel.
With COVID variants now being a 'way of life', many are returning to in-person connections again. Yes, we miss seeing each other, giving aloha hugs and handshakes (at your discretion and comfort level), and having face-to-face interactions. The job of living real life is back - if we choose to make it happen.
This year's Annual Conference will feature the realities of the global environment - nationally and locally in Hawaii - good and not-so-good. But, through it all, we remain to be humble and kind. This contrast will be featured at the Conference as integrity is the pledge of the profession. Sit tight and pay attention as we take you on a ride of highs and lows. As Tim McGraw's Grammy-award winning song goes, "... don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie ~ I know you got mountains to climb, but always stay humble and kind."
Break out of quarantine and join us in person at the 62nd Annual Conference as we welcome a line-up of great speakers. Here to provide the latest developments in the profession will be Eric Hansen, past chairman of the American Institute of CPAs (2018-2019). Eric will discuss the most current professional issues and share insights on some of the major initiatives underway and on the horizon.
Political corruption is serious and undermines the public's trust in our system. The Honolulu Department of the Prosecuting Attorney and former Hawaii Circuit Judge and United States Attorney, Steven Alm will be introducing a number of legislative proposals for the 2023 session aimed at giving us more tools to investigate and prosecute corruption cases. Prosecuting Attorney Alm is now happy to be the Honolulu Prosecutor and will continue this effort.
You won't want to miss this riveting presentation on the "greatest corruption case in Hawaii history" as Alexander "Ali" Silvert shares the inside story of his book, "The Mailbox Conspiracy", a fascinating study in the corruption of power and the abuse of public office. When HPD police chief Louis Kealoha and his wife, Katherine, the city's deputy prosecutor, reported their mailbox stolen to frame a family member, it was only the beginning of an elaborate conspiracy. You'll be kept on the edge of your seat!
To continue keeping your brain stimulated, we'll partake in friendly competition with Trivia by Trey! Think you know geography, music, news, food, entertainment, ??? Well, you're up for a challenge! It'll be fun and interactive with prizes - yes!
Timely updates, useful information, and amazing stories - 7 hours of CPE, food to fill your belly, SWAG, happy hour and hella fun! Don't miss this event and register now!
