Welcome to the AFWA Flagstaff Chapter Website!

January 2017 Presidents Message

Hello everyone.  Happy New Year!  2017 is already quickly rolling along.  At work, we have started back to working full days on Fridays.  We are gearing up for tax season.  I am not quite ready for it.  

I was jotting down a couple New Year’s resolutions for myself.  Pretty much the same ones as last year.  They didn’t seem to stick last year, so I am planning to work a little harder at them this year. 

As I was thinking about my own New Year’s resolutions, I wondered if our Chapter had any.  Does the Flagstaff Chapter of AFWA have any New Year’s resolutions?  Is there an area that we need to focus on in the short term?  Do we have any long term goals?  Or are we happy just the way we are?

Bring your thoughts on our Chapters New Year’s resolutions to the next meeting on January 25th.   Kevin Stephens will be providing us with an Individual Tax Update.  Remember to RSVP. 

Looking forward to a successful and productive new year!

Thank you,

Diana M. Sickels
