In the last decade he has put a tremendous amount of effort into forwarding the CPA financial planning profession. He uses every podium opportunity to highlight the value of financial planning, including the PFP section and the PFS credential. Sid is a wonderful mentor and encourages all those he comes in contact with. He spends a great deal of time reaching out to young people and encouraging them in their CPA/PFS pursuits. He has made a difference in so many lives.”
