Check Out Our Rising Stars


Chairman’s Message

By TXCPA Chairman Sheila Enriquez, JD, CPA-Houston, CFF, CVA


Your November/December issue of Today’s CPA is here and it sure looks good! Whether you’re reading the print copy from your mailbox or clicking through the digital version at, we know you’ll enjoy reading more about the energetic and happy faces gracing the cover. These are our 2022 Rising Stars – the future of our profession.

You can read their individual profiles in the cover story of this issue. We send our heartfelt congratulations to these 20 young CPAs on this well-deserved honor. We look forward to watching them continue to shine!

Who do you know in your network, firm, company or community who is worthy of recognition as a 2023 Rising Star? Help us honor these up-and-comers by submitting a nomination through our simple online process at The deadline is December 15, 2022.

We have two other important programs coming up. Our first ever CPA Week is planned for November 7 – 18. In partnership with AICPA and at least 35 state CPA societies, we’re putting members in classrooms across the country to talk about this dynamic profession. We’re also asking you to share your stories on social media. Keep an eye out for more details at and in your member communications.

Also coming up is our annual TXCPA Month of Service in December. This is a great time of year to mobilize our 28,000 members to give back to their communities with financial literacy education and service. Contact your chapter to find out how you can be involved in planned outreach near you or visit the TXCPA website to find resources to prepare for outreach on your own.

We are thankful for you and this professional community, and we wish you the best this holiday season!
