We are 20 years out from 9/11, the tragic event that changed everything in the US. We all have our 9/11 stories – the things we remember most when we think back to that fateful day.

To mark the occasion, we’re going to hear from some of the leaders in the accounting and finance profession, their stories, where they were when it happened, and how the event has impacted the profession. Those leaders are:

  • AICPA President and CEO, Barry Melancon
  • Tom Hood, Executive Vice President of Business Growth and Engagement with the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants
  • Jessica McClain, Controller for Brand USA and a member of The MACPA Foundation.
  • Ed Rommel, a retired CPA, a former partner with TRS CPA Group, and a former chair of the Maryland Association of CPAs’ Board of Directors.
  • Tim Samuel, CFO of Bridgeway Community Church, and a member of the MACPA’s Board of Directors. 
  • Lexy Kessler, a partner with Aronson, and current MACPA Board Chair.
  • MACPA President and CEO, Jackie Brown

Let’s spend some time today looking back – and looking forward.
