NCCPAP Shares November 2020 President’s Message

Newly elected NCCPAP President, Mark Stewart Jr., CPA, issues his first President’s Message. Mark says, “There is no greater honor in this profession than to be recognized by your peers. I am beyond humbled that all of you have put your faith in me to lead NCCPAP, our organization. I promise to do my best in this position, as I have done all the years I have served at NCCPAP-at the Chapter level and the National level.”

He also discusses how NCCPAP has transformed to meet the stay-at-home mandates. Over the past year, NCCPAP has hosted numerous free seminars online. In doing so, Mark says, “NCCPAP touched hundreds of practitioners across the country. Those practitioners touched tens of thousands of small businesses and individuals and I am sure saved countless small businesses and families across the country from financial ruin. Each and every NCCPAP member should be proud of that. We will strive to keep this momentum going.”

HCC Partners Offers Insights for Searching for Talent

You may be wondering, “How’s the recruiting/executive search business holding up during COVID-19? It must be extremely difficult.” These times are more challenging than most—with candidates unable to decide if they want to be considered for a new job during a pandemic. Childcare issues, unwillingness to give up unemployment compensation, fear of infection if they must work on-site and the financial stability of the new company have been getting in the way of recruiting talent in 2020. These issues have caused some candidates to hide behind their emails and LinkedIn profiles, even though employers are trying to fill positions quickly, for both short-term and long-term needs.
