Editor's Note
Gail Perry, CPA, Managing Editor Successful careers are not gifts – they are earned through hard work and dedication. In this month’s Education & Careers newsletter, we explore the career of the new president-elect of the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants, one of the largest state accounting organizations in the country. Half a world away, we also learn about the life of an insolvency practitioner as part of our ongoing Day in the Life series. What have you done to jumpstart your career lately? AccountingWEB would love to know. Please send me a note if you have some career advice you would like to share with our audience.

Best wishes,
