Joseph Falbo Named NYSSCPA President

The New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA) has elected Joseph M. Falbo Jr. of Grand Island, N.Y., as its new president. His one-year term began June 1.

Falbo is a partner and member of the executive committee at Tronconi Segarra & Associates in Williamsville, N.Y. He has been a member of the society since 1994 and is a member of its Buffalo Chapter.

One of Falbo’s priorities is leading the NYSSCPA as it grows its NextGen program. Launched two years ago, NextGen offers career support and networking opportunities to accounting’s next generation of young professionals. It’s also a personal commitment, said Falbo, who co-founded the NYSSCPA Buffalo Chapter’s Young CPAs Committee. He later became the chapter’s president.

“I know firsthand the benefits of a joining a professional association when you’re just starting out in your career,” Falbo said. “The fact that we now have a statewide program dedicated to providing young accounting professionals the resources they need to advance their careers is very exciting and has a lot of potential.”
