As we approach the Thanksgiving season, I would like to take a minute to thank all of the supporters of our Long Island Chapter. Whether you serve on our board, sponsor our events or contribute in other important ways, you are an essential part of what makes this Chapter so successful.
We have an incredible dinner program scheduled for November 8, 2016 titled Successful Career Strategies for the CFO. Our speaker Samuel Dergel is highly respected consultant, executive recruiter, executive coach and corporate trainer. He is the author of Guide to CFO Success: Leadership Strategies for Corporate Financial Professionals. I personally am looking to hear Mr. Dergel speak and hope to see you all there. Don’t forget its election day so get to the polls early so you can enjoy the event.
Earlier this month our Student Activities and Employment Committee hosted over 70 local college students to a free Career Self-Branding Workshop. The panel consisted of professionals from Canon USA and Deloitte. This interactive session focused on answering student’s questions and assist them in preparing for job interviews and career placement. Attendees were then invited to network with our members during the cocktail hour before our regularly scheduled dinner program. I would like to thank all of those involved in making this event a great success.
As always we welcome you to participate in the Long Island Chapter activities and value your suggestions.
