Two Southington area accountants have been appointed to the advisory council for the Connecticut Certified Public Accountant Association society (CTCPA). For the second year in a row, Marie Kulesza, Plantsville, and Thomas Goldfuss III, Southington, will serve on the council.
An associate college professor, Kulesza will represent the educator’s interest group on the council. This fall, she will join the faculty at Central Connecticut State University, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in accounting. She also earned her M.S.P.A. in accounting from the University of Hartford and has worked as an associate professor of business administration at the University of Saint Joseph.
Goldfuss, a manager with Whittelsey & Hadley, P.C., in Hartford, will be representing the CTCPA Educational Trust Fund golf tournament committee on the council. Goldfuss earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Fairfield University and his master’s degree from the University of Hartford.
The 30-member council works to brainstorm improvements for the CTCPA society and accountants across the state, and to serve as a source of information and advice for the CTCPA Board of Directors. The society, formed in New Haven in 1908, has a current membership of 6,000.
Kulesza and Goldfuss were appointed at the society’s annual meeting at The Aqua Turf Club last month.
