State Board Report

April 2012

Attorneys and investigators from 22 Accountancy Boards considered mobility implementation, ways Boards use social media, standards incorporated by reference, conducting an investigation, audits performed by non-U.S. auditors and the Accountancy Licensee Database at the 17th State Board Legal Counsel Conference, March 11-13 in San Antonio. Stacey Grooms, NASBA Regulatory Affairs Manager, reported the 37 attendees, including five investigators, made for record attendance for this forum, which promotes the networking of the State Accountancy Boards’ legal counsel. She encouraged all the Boards to send their legal counsel to next year’s meeting.

NASBA Legal Counsel Noel Allen asked the attorneys: “To what extent can states by statute or rule adopt or incorporate by reference standards developed by someone else?” The answer is different depending on the state’s rules and law, he said.
