Making a transition can be a challenge. Whether it be a career move, changing clients, or pursuing a new specialty there are always new things to face. In this issue of What Counts we take a look at transitions, and how best to prepare for them. Alfred T. Marciano, CPA, an owner and principal at Charland, Marciano & Company CPAs, LLP, sees change as an opportunity to embrace, not fear. The City of Providence is amidst a transition as well, and we visit with Colin Kane, lead principal at the Peregrine Group LLC, and chairman of the 195 Commission, which is tasked with the redevelopment of nearly 30 acres in downtown Providence. Kane will also deliver the keynote address at our Membership Meeting this fall. What Counts introduces readers to Lookman Buky Folami, Ph.D., CPA, who returned to the classroom to prepare to teach. We check in with Robert Batchelor, CPA, who has found plenty to keep him busy in retirement, and we go "One-on-One" with Frank Tillinghast, CFO of CleanBrands, LLC, whose early experiences helped ease his transition from public to private accounting. We also hear from outgoing RISCPA President Stephen J. Ursillo, Jr., CPA, who reflects on a busy year. So get busy reading and find out What Counts!
