The CFALA Career Development Committee would like to invite you to attend our next Happy Hour chat. The Happy Hour chat events are good for networking and refining your skill set to help you reach the next level in your Career. Each Happy Hour chat features a short presentation to discuss the topic of the event and a mingling session for you to socialize with your peers and the presenters. Appetizers will be provided along with one drink per attendee.


Chee-Sum Tan, CFA, CPA, FCCA, ABV, is currently a vice president with Union Bank of California where he is in charge of accounting policy compliance and valuing a multitude of bank assets. Chee-Sum started out as an auditor in public accounting in 1979. After earning his Chartered Certified Accountant certificate (an equivalent of a CPA license in commonwealth nations), he attended Drake University and finished with an MBA in 1983. From there he went on to work in a number of industries, including public accounting, manufacturing, wholesaling, retailing, transportation, federal government, and banking where he carried out financial and accounting responsibilities of various kinds.

Along the way, Chee-Sum obtained his CPA license, picked up his CFA charter, earned an accreditation in business valuation (ABV), and became a fellow with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

In his spare time he teaches courses at the University of Phoenix and UCLA Extension.

A consummate polymath, Chee-Sum takes pleasure in writing fictions, publishing books, drawing, playing chess, and doing calculus proofs. But what he enjoys most is sharing his wide experience and vast knowledge with others.
