Vicki Mulak, EA, CFP, was a tremendous force at CSEA, a steadfast presence, giving selflessly of her time and talent to support our Society for over three decades.
Over the years Vicki served as the Chair of various committees, including Education, Bylaws, Nominating and Legislative Affairs. She had an amazing wealth of tax knowledge, and was particularly knowledgeable about California taxation. Every taxpayer in California has unknowingly been the beneficiary of Vicki’s mission to protect our rights to efficient and effective state tax administration.
Vicki worked diligently in many areas of CSEA, but especially in the Legislative Affairs Committee, which was created by the late Jim Stern, EA. Her work resulted in Enrolled Agents’ inclusion in the professional services exemption to AB 5. CSEA’s annual day at the State Capital (“Jim Stern Day”) became her baby; she built on what Stern started and her leadership took it to new heights. Every person with an “EA” by their name is stronger in their right to practice because of Vicki. In honor of Vicki’s contributions to advocacy, the CSEA Board of Directors voted unanimously to change Jim Stern Legislative Day to Stern/Mulak Legislative Day starting July 1, 2020.
We will never forget Vicki's amazing smile and generous spirit, and we will honor her memory by continuing the work she loved so much. Your generous contribution to the Legislative Action Fund will help CSEA continue her work.
