Thank you to everyone who joined us last week for our YEAR END event! A special thanks goes out to our sponsor Wright Ford Young & Co. CPAs. It was a great evening, and it gives us such pleasure to be a part of AFWA-OC where women really do strive to Connect, Advance, and Lead.

We were able to celebrate the Installation of the AFWA-OC Board of Directors for our 2014-2015 year. We started the evening by thanking our prior year board of directors for their hard work and dedication. Plus we welcomed all of our new 2014-2015 board and committee members.  We celebrated the Anniversaries of two of our members, Gail Campbell and Ann Marie Broderick, CPA.

We were very excited to honor Millie Culpepper as our chapter’s Member of the Year.  This is a prestigious award for someone who consistently demonstrates a commitment to our local chapter and to the goals of professional women in accounting and finance, inspires us to be our best, and makes a difference in people’s lives.

Later, we heard from our guest speaker, Scharrell Talley-Jackson of Squar Milner on her perspective on implementing new software within an organization.  She provided the audience with some great tips and tricks when researching, selecting and implementing new software for your company.

We finished the evening with an opportunity drawing for a Crate and Barrel gift card, tickets to Bowers Museum, and a free dinner to our next AFWA Dinner Meeting.

We hope to see all of you at that next Dinner Meeting on August 20, 2014. Check out some of the moments we captured on camera below.
