Day of Service

Day of Services

In last week's column, I wrote about the Marcum Foundation and our Firm's commitment to supporting the communities in which we do business - community being one of Marcum's nine core values (see all core values here). As we look ahead to Thanksgiving and all of the holiday festivities that will follow, it gives me great pleasure to use this week's column to announce the first annual Marcum Day of Service.

On Wednesday, November 25 - the day before Thanksgiving - all 19 of Marcum's U.S. offices will be closed for business, and all partners and staff will spend the day volunteering at a local charity organization. Everyone will be paid as if they were coming to work as usual. But instead, Marcum teams will report to local nonprofits selected by each office and roll up their sleeves to sort food, deliver meals, write holiday cards, help repair damaged homes, or participate in any number of other service activities.

As much as we love our clients - and we do! - Marcum's commitment to serve with excellence will be channeled in a different direction on November 25. The phones will not get answered, and email will be unopened. Working on a Marcum community service team will be our Firm-wide priority for that one day. It's a small, but hopefully meaningful, expression of the true spirit of Thanksgiving; an opportunity for us to set aside the business of business for a single day and give ourselves, instead, to helping those less fortunate.

I am extremely proud of the entire Marcum organization for embracing this core value of our corporate culture, and I hope and trust that you, our clients and friends, will support us in this effort. I can't think of a better way to embark on the season of giving.


I'd be remiss if I didn't somehow address the tragedy that unfolded last Friday night in Paris. Over 500 innocent people were randomly killed or injured in a heinous, cowardly act by fanatics whose sole purpose was to take innocent lives. Those actions could have unfolded anywhere, and it was Paris' misfortune this time. Let us hope our U.S. intelligence agencies and Homeland Security people are steps ahead of those who may be looking to do something like that here. We wish a speedy recovery to those injured and our condolences to the loved ones of those murdered.


News Flash: Thirty minutes before this column posted today, another exciting development in the continuing evolution of our Firm was announced. Effective December 1, Marcum will be merging with Smart, Devine & Company, LLC, a full-service accounting and consulting firm headquartered in Philadelphia. Smart Devine will bring approximately 75 partners and staff to Marcum, with a special capability in advisory services. We are delighted to welcome them to the Firm and hope those of you in Philadelphia will take the opportunity to learn more about our expanded capabilities from your Marcum service professional. Look for more exciting Marcum expansion news early next week.


Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year. In the Weiner household, it's a day for family, food and football. On behalf of my family, partners and the entire Marcum team, I wish each and every one of you a wonderful Thanksgiving. We're off for the long holiday weekend next Friday, so my next posting will be on December 4.


Community: A Core Value Marcum LLP | Accountants and Advisors | New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, California and Florida Certified Public Accountants
Community: A Core Value

Community: A Core Value

Community is one of Marcum’s nine core values, and giving back to the communities in which we do business is one of the ways we express it. We buy our fair share of sponsorships and journal ads for charity events, of course, but we also host toy drives, food drives and drives to collect personal toiletries for the homeless. We field teams for charity races, serve meals at homeless shelters, and build houses with Habitat for Humanity. We also donate a percentage of proceeds from several of our “tent pole” events, such as the annual Marcum MicroCap Conference. We even stage our own annual walk-run for charity in Long Island, New York, called the Marcum Workplace Challenge, which involves nearly 12,000 participants and spectators and which has raised almost $700,000 to date.

Because virtually all of Marcum’s offices across the U.S. support charitable organizations in their communities, one way or another, we decided to bring all of these activities together under a national umbrella. We figure that way we’ll make a bigger impact by providing a firm-wide platform that all of our people can be proud of and get involved with. The Marcum Foundation, which originated in our South Florida region, rolled out to all Marcum regions in June, and already it has become a focal point of our corporate culture.

Movember Madness

Movember Madness

It’s November 6, and I haven’t shaved yet this month. Why? you may ask. Because it’s “Movember,” the month when men are challenged to grow out their facial hair for charity. “Mo” may be for “moustache,” but I’m going full throttle. The Movember Foundation is all about raising awareness and funds to address men’s health crises like testicular and prostate cancer, which cut too many lives short. My unshaven chin is an expression of solidarity.

If you read my column last week, you know I’ve been looking forward to this month as a time to finally relax after a grueling October. Some people who don’t know the reason for my stubble may think not shaving is pushing the relaxation envelope a little too far. I have to admit that I hardly recognized myself in the mirror this morning when I got dressed for work; there’s a little too much gray for my liking. But that’s OK. It’s for a good cause.

Round and Round

Round and Round

As I sat down to write this week’s column I suddenly realized that October has just one day left. The whole month has been a blur to me. I've been on a virtual merry go round for weeks.

It started out with a six-day trip to London on the 3rd to be on set for some of the filming of the new "Bourne" film. I flew home on the 8th, landed at JFK, headed into NYC to pick up my family, and it was off to Long Island for the long Columbus Day weekend, as Lily, Kate and Max were off from school on Friday and Monday. The rest of that week was pretty calm, with four days in a row spent in our Long Island office prepping for our upcoming partner retreat.
