State Board Report

November 2014

NASBA Chair Carlos Johnson opened NASBA’s 107th Annual Meeting, November 2-5, by stating there could not be a better location than Washington, D.C., for a meeting. He told the 356 attendees, including representatives from 53 jurisdictions, that now 52 of the 55 U.S. jurisdictions have passed individual mobility legislation.

Attendees were also welcomed by D.C. Board Chair Robert Todero and D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray. The Mayor proudly stated that 80 percent of the District’s three-year olds now attend school all day every day – and he said he was going to be sure to “steer them in the right direction” to become accountants! Mayor Gray urged NASBA meeting attendees from across the U.S. to support the District of Columbia’s being given the authority to manage its own money. He also presented awards to former D.C. Board of Accountancy Members Michael J. Cobb, Clarence Magwood and Antonia Browning Smiley for their dedicated service to the District.

This issue of the State Board Report highlights some of the presentations made at the Annual Meeting. PowerPoint presentations and other information distributed at the meeting can be found in the Presentations and Speeches section of this website. Total Annual Meeting attendance, including guests and staff, was 468.
