Buffalo accountant Joseph M. Falbo Jr. has been elected as president of the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants for a one-year term that began June 1.
Falbo, a member of the state group since 1994, is a tax partner and member of the executive committee at Tronconi Segarra & Associates LLP in Williamsville. The Rochester native, a Niagara University graduate, joined Tronconi in August 2008, after 12 years as a partner at Swiantek Falbo & Moscato LLP in Niagara Falls.
He will lead the state group as it seeks to grow its two-year-old NextGen program to develop more younger accountants. He previously served the state organization as president-elect, vice president, secretary/treasurer and a member of the Executive Committee, and has chaired its Chapter Task Force and four committees. The Grand Island resident is also a member of the group’s Buffalo Chapter, co-founded its Young CPAs Committee, and later served as chapter president.
“The NYSSCPA has been my professional home, since I began my career,” Falbo said. “It is an honor and extremely humbling to be asked by my peers to assume the role of president. I look forward to working with the other officers and volunteers to represent this outstanding group of CPAs.”
The NYSSCPA, founded in 1897, has more than 28,000 members and is the oldest and third-largest state accounting group in the country.
