State Board Report

April 2012

It’s time to go on line and register for NASBA’s 2012 Regional Meetings, June 13-15 in Philadelphia and June 27-29 in Anchorage. The meetings will offer an update on the status of the Financial Accounting Foundation’s private company standard setting initiative, presented by FAF Chairman John Brennan at the Eastern Regional and FAF President Teresa Polley at the Western Regional, and the results of the American Accounting Association’s Pathways Commission’s work, presented at both meetings by the Commission’s Chairman, Dr. Bruce Behn. The Regional Meetings will once again feature the smaller interactive sessions that encourage dialog among the states. Besides the Regional Breakouts, there will also be sessions on the impact of international standards on State Boards, keeping continuing professional education relevant, effective enforcement and communicating to licensees and the public on a limited budget. For those wondering how NASBA has fared since the re-firement of David Costello, President Ken Bishop and Chair Mark Harris will be describing the staff reorganization and projects underway.

There will be luncheons and receptions to provide networking opportunities, and a guest tour, as well as a gala event. Scholarships are available to assist State Boards that are unable to send a Board member to their Regional Meeting. To register or to obtain details on the meetings’ full program, or more information on the NASBA scholarships, please visit the Meetings & Events section of the NASBA website.
