Since its founding in 1929, the Fort Worth Chapter has been led by volunteers: CPAs who contribute time and talent to advance the profession. Professional staff have made contributions to the Chapter's success as well.
Kathy R. Kelly is the Chapter's third executive director, coming to the post in 1998. In May, 2019, she will retire.
Michelle Barton, CPA, will assume the executive director position. Barton has been with the Chapter since 2014, assuming increasing levels of responsibility for administration, programming and governance.
Kelly's plans for the coming year include time among the medieval English cathedrals she studies and a walking music festival along the Danube. Below: Kathy at Wells Cathedral, 2015.
