President's Message

Happy New Year to you all! According to the Chinese zodiac, 2020 is the Year of the Rat. It is believed to represent thrift, diligence, and positivity.   

As usual, we are going to have our Income Tax Update technical dinner meeting this month. Darrell Carlis, CPA from Boos & Associates, A Professional Corporation will be giving a presentation on all the latest changes in the federal and state income tax laws. This meeting is always informative and timely.  I hope you will be able to join us.

As a preview of the upcoming Ethics training, we will have a joint meeting with Fresno State’s Beta Alpha Psi with our guest speaker Mark Reynolds, ex-President of a health care company based in Fresno and Visalia, who pleaded guilty to unlawfully converting to his own use client funds held by his company. He will be presenting ethics in related to business and accounting. The details of this event will be found in the upcoming newsletter.

Lastly, if you have any suggestion of topics or speakers, or if you would like to be involved with the Board, please feel free to contact me at

Thank you.

Eunji Seo, CMA, CPA, CIA
President of IMA Fresno Chapter
