NCCPAP Women Honor the Late Susan Gallo

On November 2, 2017, NCCPAP participated in the Accountants Club Of America 90th Anniversary Gala at the Union League Club in New York City. The theme of this historic event was Celebrating Women of Achievement in Public Accounting.
To commemorate this event, NCCPAP paid tribute to the late Susan Gallo, CPA. She had been in public accounting for more than thirty years. Susan was a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, New York State Society of CPAs and National Conference of CPA Practitioners, where she chaired the education committee. Susan was also secretary of the Nassau Suffolk Chapter of NCCPAP. We will always remember Susan’s accomplishments as an inspiration to today’s young CPAs and professional women everywhere.

As President of your organization, I am dedicated not only to being the face of NCCPAP, but also getting involved, being available to meet with reporters, and taking an active role in the monthly IRS National Public Liaison meetings.
