Recently, CMA’s office supplies vendor held a contest to recognize its clients’ accounting departments. Diana Escobar, CMA’s Operations Administrator in Burbank, submitted the winning essay describing why CMA’s accounting department deserved the prize. Here is a picture of CMA’s Accounting Department enjoying their reward – a free lunch provided by Ron Lasley and Cathy de Leon of Economy Office Supply (Cathy even brought home-made cupcakes!).
On behalf of the entire staff of CMA, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the folks in the Accounting Department for all they do to keep us running, and kudos to Diana Escobar for taking the initiative to write an essay recognizing their extraordinary efforts. Economy Office Supply published Diana’s winning story in their own online newsletter:
Winning Story for the Accounting Dept.:
Credit Management Association (CMA) is a non-profit association that has served business to-business companies since 1883. CMA helps credit, collection, and financial decision-makers get the information and support they need to make fast, accurate credit decisions.
CMA’s Accounting Department consist of 8 individuals including the CFO bookkeepers and IT personnel who handle everything and anything that has to do with money and programming. These 8 people have been the longest standing employees for CMA with more than 100 years combined and one person having more than 30 years of experience working for CMA. They handle all accounting for our other remote locations as well. Everything goes threw them and they are very strict individuals who work very hard for the company with very little recognition.
CMA is an association with a major focus on our members we hold a lot of functions, seminars and events for the members to network. Plenty of times departments are invited to join in on the events but unfortunately the accounting department hardly ever goes as there is always a reason to stay behind and run things smoothly.
I believe CMA’s accounting department deserves some type of recognition and know that we [everyone else at CMA] appreciates them for their hard work. I hope to hear from you that our Accounting Department has won as they deserve the lunch away from the office and especially deserve the recognition.
