XPX [chapter_name] Meetings

Our 2019 programs are designed to increase participatory involvement with member round-table and panel discussions. Why should you participate? Many reasons, but for starters:

  • Demonstrate what you bring to the table as you share your expertise
  • Spot potential partners among the membership as they display their niche knowledge
  • Get to know members more deeply

Roll-up your sleeves and exercise your mind alongside your colleagues and friends!

Emerging Professional Committee

The Emerging Professional Committee focuses on developing methods and programming to reach out to young professionals looking to further develop their business and leadership skills. Examples of programming includes mentoring with senior level professionals; committee leadership opportunities; networking; and social events, to name a few.  For more information contact: Nermin Avdic, Chair - navdic@krdcpas.com

This is what it entails:

Most committee meetings will be conducted by telephone, and that participation will not be too time burdensome; perhaps only an hour or so a month, although some months could be a little more, and others less. There will be 3-5 members per committee, although we are not limiting the size if many wish to participate. Membership is a good way, without too much time expended, to get to know other XPX members better, and to have a role in the leadership of the organization.  Click here for additional information of each committee.
