CT-GFOA Members Update Memo – February 17, 2021

 

Dear CT-GFOA Members,

 

At this time the Board wanted to provide our membership with the following updates:

 

1.      The Board of Directors held a Zoom meeting on January 22nd.  Below is an update from that meeting.

a.    The Winter 2021 meeting scheduled to be held on Thursday February 11, 2021 at St. Clements Castle in Portland was cancelled. 

b.   The Spring 2021 meeting scheduled to be held on Thursday, April 8, 2021 at the Aqua Turf in Plantsville will be cancelled.

c.    In place of the Spring 2021 meeting, a mid-afternoon virtual membership meeting will be held on Thursday, April 8th.  Please mark your calendars.  At this virtual meeting the Board will provide membership with an overview of proposed revisions to our Corporation’s Mission Statement and revisions to the Corporation’s By-Laws, specifically to Article II Sec. I Membership.  We will look into having CCM provide a State Budget Update.  Additionally, an open forum will be provided at the end of the meeting to allow membership the opportunity to reconnect.  Additional details will be provided in March.

 

2.      We remain hopeful that the 2021 Annual Meeting at Tunxis Plantation scheduled for Thursday, May 20th, 2021 will happen.  Please mark your calendars.

4.      The NESGFOA Board continues planning efforts for the 2021 Fall Conference to be held in North Falmouth, Massachusetts at the Seacrest Beach Hotel, September 12th-15th, 2021.

Kent Scully – February 9, 2021

With a heavy heart we note the passing of Kent Scully who recently lost his battle with Covid-19.  Kent, a CPA and his partner Chris Wolf, established Scully & Wolf, LLP in 1973.  For several decades the firm audited cities, towns, and non-profits throughout the State of Connecticut and during that time developed many employees who would go on to successful careers in municipal finance.  The news of Kent’s passing will sadden the many current and former CT-GFOA members who had the opportunity to know him.  Hopefully they will be comforted by the memories they shared with Kent.     

 

Continue to Stay Safe & Be Well!
