We made it! That was an intense weekend for BAP, but we got through it. We still have events coming up, so don't check out for summer just yet.
Visit unr.givepulse.com if you are interested in a community service opportunity!
There are many events to choose from, so if you are low on hours this is an easy option to make your hours this semester.
Only one person is signed up for the review session May 7, so that's another opportunity.
Please do not forget that the bowling social is May 2nd, starting at 9pm at the GSR! If you would like to come, please RSVP at the following link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/gsr-bowling-social-tickets-33673815288
This will be free for those who attend, and appetizers will be provided while we bowl as long as at least half of the members that sign up are not current officers! If you need a ride to the social, please email me so that you are able to attend. This will be a fun way to end the year and get to know other members in BAP. Although it is a fun event, don't forget that it is a great networking opportunity to meet people who may be associated with firms that you are interested in!
Whoever wants sashes needs to email Jeff at email@example.com and give Professor Vreeland $15.
Final Member Meeting will be May 3rd at Noon.
Remember that the fundraiser at BJ's is Wednesday starting at 5:30. Officers will be leaving around 7:00 from class. Contact one of us if you want to carpool.
Remember that you need to contact Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have outside hours. You are allowed up to 5, and need some sort of proof.
These will be your officers for the Fall:

Currently firms register in the states in which they provide services. Similarly CPAs obtain a state specific license. Traditionally this provided accountability and confidence that the services provided were in accordance with specific state laws.
The changing landscape and environment are challenging these traditional practices and the lines dividing states that restrict which firm or CPA can provide services and where are beginning to fade.
The AICPA and NASBA have been developing what is known as the Uniform Accountancy Act (NRS 628.335 for Nevada) which would allow firms and CPAs to cross these lines and provide services in states in which they are not registered or licensed.
Currently cloud services allow for the technologically capable firm and business to communicate, provide supporting materials and documentation entirely through an internet connection without physically making a presence on-site. This is the business world trying to keep up with all the tools and resources technology is providing.
What will this mean for the future of the Accounting professional?
It might be worth a young professionals time to consider where the profession will be in the next decade and decide how best to prepare.
Reference: Silver State CPA October 2016 edition; topic Firm Mobility Update
This semester is full of opportunities to connect with accounting professionals. Professional lunches, Spring Banquet, Firm tours and Socials
Starting conversations cold can be troubling for some.
Here's something to talk about as well as a way to demonstrate awareness of accounting topics:
FASB ASC 605 Revenue Recognition proposal.
Look it up, learn something and impress those firms with your knowledge of the FASB.
Hope you all had a wonderful Monday! We had a great turnout at the member meeting today, but here are the latest updates if you need a refreshing!
