President Christine Freeland’s October 2018 Message

A Message from the President, October 2018

Christine Z. Freeland, CPA, ABA, ARA, NSA President 2018-2019

I would like to thank all the many members who have encouraged me and elected me to the office of NSA President. Words cannot begin to express how grateful and appreciative I am for your support.

As I have been preparing for my year as President I have spent a great deal of time thinking about NSA and what it is we stand for and what it is we do. During the process I have looked over our mission and vision statement multiple times and I am constantly reminded that NSA is about our members.

So, what is our mission and what does it say about you, the member. The mission of NSA is to provide national leadership and help members achieve success. Success, what does that look like? The dictionary defines it as “the accomplishment of an aim or purpose” and “the attainment of popularity or profit.” For some of us the profit attainment stands out, this is how we provide for our loved ones, prepare for the future and maybe even a little personal recreation in the off season. For others maybe having an aim of being the best practitioner in our town or having more clients than last year is our measure of success.

For NSA, our success is defined by your success. Have we been instrumental in helping you accomplish your aims and purpose? As a member, I know that NSA has been key in the growth and the maturing of my practice. Whether by professional insurance from Forrest T Jones, the NSA leadership program, Tax Talk and Accounting Talk or our newest benefit VeriFyle, my NSA benefits have added value and professional growth to my business.

What about you? Is NSA adding to your success? My hope is that we truly are adding to your success. We have an outstanding list of benefits that will add value to the success of your practice. If you haven’t checked them out, please take a few minutes before next tax season is in full swing and make sure you are taking full advantage of all that is offered:

  • Tax Talk
  • Accounting Talk
  • VeriFyle
  • CCH Tax Center
  • Income & Fees Survey
  • Webinars
  • Resource Library
  • Member Toolkits: Engagement Letters, Fees, Firing a Client

These are just a few of your member benefits. Check out the website,, for these and even more of what will help with your success.
As I move forward this year as your President, my goal is to stay “Member Focused and Mission Driven.” Please let me know how I am doing throughout the year, as I am here for you the member.
