State Board Report
The traditionally popular Regional Breakout Sessions continued to receive high marks from participants at the 2014 Regional Meetings. Evaluations of the Regional Meetings this year again contained comments on the excellent networking opportunities provided throughout the Meetings, and especially during the Regional Breakouts. Among the topics discussed at the Regional Breakout Sessions were: the potential impacts of firm mobility; using the NASBA CPE tracking service; following through on firms found not to have obtained the peer review needed to provide employee benefit plan audits; the shrinking of the pool of peer reviewers; mobility related to international professionals; streamlining state government operations; work that can be performed by “inactive” CPAs; online accelerated education; and the ARSC preparation standards proposal.
Moderators for the Regional Meetings, Regional Breakout Sessions and the New Board Member Orientation Sessions were: Southwest Regional Director A. Carlos Barrera (TX); Southeast Regional Director Jimmy E. Burkes (MS); Northeast Regional Director John F. Dailey, Jr. (NJ); Middle Atlantic Regional Director Tyrone E. Dickerson (VA); Great Lakes Regional Director W. Michael Fritz (OH); Director-at-Large Raymond N. Johnson (OR); Mountain Regional Director Richard N. Reisig (MT); and Central Regional Director Douglas W. Skiles (NE).
