November 15,2017 Chapter Meeting
Since our September chapter meeting was cancelled due to the Hurricane, this topic and guest speaker has been moved to November.  Join James Samson, CPP, Manager of the Managed Services Tax team to learn more about understanding local taxes.  Local taxes can be complex and mysterious, and he will focus on peeling the onion of local taxes.  

We will also have some time to celebrate Thanksgiving early with a traditional style meal, and to provide Food or Books to a local charity.  Also, don't forget those cell phones! 

Our Focus

Our focus is to provide continuing education at an affordable rate, a convenient location and provide opportunities for networking and even guest speaking.  We provide opportunities for members to connect, learn and enjoy their time with like-minded individuals.

Robin is the Secretary of the Bay to Gulf Chapter.  She is the Associate Controller for USF.

Chapter Membership


At the beginning of each year, chapter attendees will need to renew.  Once you have renewed your membership, you will get a membership card!   

Our chapter prides itself on keeping continuing education costs low.  The membership costs are $20 if you are a national APA member, and $27.50 if you are not. Every chapter meeting the cost is $10 per session if you are a chapter member and $15 if you are not.  We request that if you attend the chapter meetings as a guest more than three times, you become a paying member.  The cost of the meeting is for your RCH credit; it just so happens to include a light dinner, desserts, and a drink. 

Additional membership benefits include the Annual Fall Summit!  This event is held in the fall and is free for chapter members.  The benefit includes RCH credits! Non chapter members pay $30 for the event!
