This board consists of a group of individuals considered experts in their fields (CPAs, Former IRS Commissioners, Senators, Congressmen, etc.) that are brought together throughout the year for retreats and think tanks. Dennis hopes to bring his knowledge of agricultural auditing to these events as well as gain insight from other board members.   USDA Top 100 Cooperatives Gardiner Thomsen works with 16 of the top 100 agricultural cooperatives per the USDA List for 2016   CPA Announcement: Please join us in congratulating Charles Telk III on becoming a CPA! Anniversaries In December of 2017, Dave Thomsen celebrated his 40th anniversary of starting to work for Dan Gardiner. Next time you see him be sure to congratulate him! I am sure he will still be saying “I am too darn old for this stuff ” (I have obviously cleaned it up). Perhaps we should hang the “old SOB” label on Dave, which Dennis and Mark’s dad liked to call himself. Thank you Dave for all you have done for Gardiner Thomsen. In August of 2017, Mark Gardiner celebrated his 35th anniversary of starting with the firm. Be sure to congratulate him, next time you see him. Might have a “tug of war” over who should wear the “old SOB” label. Thank you Mark for all you have done for Gardiner Thomsen.
