State Board Report

November 2013

At the Annual Business Meeting, held on October 29, NASBA Past Chair Michael T. Daggett (AZ) and Executive Vice President Emerita Lorraine P. Sachs presented the following NASBA 2013 Awards:

NASBA Distinguished Service Award to Andrew L. DuBoff, CPA (NJ) – Recognized for his outstanding guidance for the Uniform Accountancy Act Committee’s negotiations, as well as his more than 14 years of service on the New Jersey State Board of Accountancy and active membership on the NASBA Board. On accepting the award, Mr. DuBoff urged the meeting’s attendees to become involved in NASBA: “You are sitting with people from all over the country, academia, industry, large firms, small firms. This experience has to help each and every one of us to become broadened — to have more ideas than we otherwise would have.”

William H. Van Rensselaer Public Service Award to Diane M. Rubin, CPA (CA) – Celebrated for her term as NASBA Chair 2005-2006, appointment to the Private Company Council, leadership of the California State Board of Accountancy, and involvement in NASBA activities ranging from the International Qualifications Appraisal Board to the Auditing Standards Board to the Strategic Initiatives Committee. Ms. Rubin told the Annual Meeting audience: “Find a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life: that summarizes my time with NASBA, the ASB, the Board of Accountancy and every busy season as an auditor.”

Lorraine P. Sachs Standard of Excellence Award to Richard C. Sweeney, CPA (WA) – Named for successfully building the Washington State Board of Accountancy into a model agency and consistently sharing the results of his research with other State Boards and NASBA. A past chairman of the Executive Directors Committee, he has continued to be a key participant in the work of the State Board Relevance and Effectiveness Committee. Mr. Sweeney commented: “Life is just a journey: I have been knocked down eight times and got up nine. You can’t fail if you don’t try.”
