NASBA’s Nominating Committee (Committee) is now seeking members interested in serving as Vice Chair of NASBA for the 2015-16 year. All Boards of Accountancy are encouraged to discuss possible candidates for consideration by the Committee. Note that there is no requirement that an interested and qualified member be submitted to the Committee through a Board of Accountancy. Therefore, any qualified member can directly submit their interest to the Committee.

In past years, the Committee asked that Boards of Accountancy submit letters of support for Vice Chair candidates which resulted in multiple requests to states for letters of support. For many boards, especially those with limited staff or multiple agency responsibilities, the requests can pose practical administrative problems.

The NASBA Executive Directors Committee and individual state board members have asked NASBA to try and resolve this issue. Thus, NASBA leadership and the Committee strongly suggest that candidates refrain from requesting letters of support from multiple states, and suggest they consider seeking only the support of their home state. Of course, the Committee will thoughtfully weigh all supporting materials regarding each candidate, but multiple letters resulting from candidate requests to State Boards might not outweigh the Committee’s desire to encourage a constructive, respectful and less disruptive nomination process that benefits NASBA’s stature.

For more information, please refer to NASBA’s Bylaws.

Carlos Johnson, NASBA
