State Board Report

May 2009

Denise Hanley has been named to lead NASBA’s new Management & Administrative Services division. NASBA President David A. Costello introduced the new venture at the April Board meeting as part of the effort to show NASBA is: “Bigger than we are: What we can do is much greater than what our numbers would suggest.”

Ms. Hanley told the Board the new division will extend the same services NASBA performs for state board members to other membership groups, nonprofit organizations and associations outside the CPA profession. Services to be offered will include maintaining membership databases, assisting with committee management, financial services, scheduled publications and affinity programs.

“We want to take advantage of the in‐house expertise that NASBA already has,” Ms. Hanley stated. The division will be operated as part of NASBA’s Professional Credential Services, Inc., as it will need to pay taxes, President Costello explained. He commented, “We have to look for innovative ways to grow. NASBA has a grand purpose of serving state boards of accountancy, and we have to have a way to support that.”

Ms. Hanley previously served as NASBA’s chief information officer, having played significant roles in the launch and development of both the computerbased Uniform CPA Examination’s Gateway System and the Accounting Licensee Database.
