Ethan also co-authored a professional comment letter on behalf of the New York State Society for CPAs that, in corroboration with other such letters, successfully simplified the extension process country-wide for not-for-profit organizations. He is the key trainer for the Mayor’s office, the Foundation Center and has presented at many other venues such as the NYC BAR Association, HOSTOS Community College and The New York State Society for CPAs, The Staten Island Museum and many other venues.
