State Board Report

August 2015

Proposed changes to NASBA’s Bylaws are being sent to the member Boards of Accountancy for their consideration. At the NASBA Board of Directors July 17 meeting in Seattle, recommended changes were presented by Bylaws Committee Chair Edwin G. Jolicoeur (WA) and discussed by the NASBA Board. Changes being proposed to the member Boards include:

  • If a Regional Director is unable to preside over the Region’s meeting, the NASBA Chair would designate a delegate or associate to preside.
  • An individual can only be appointed to complete one partial/unexpired term of a Board of Directors member.
  • To be eligible to serve as Vice Chair, an individual must have served on the NASBA Board of Directors for at least two years.
  • The Nominating Committee would be able to meet via telephone conferences for matters other than deliberating or voting on candidates.
  • The CPA Examination Review Board Chair and Vice Chair could have extended terms.
  • In the event of a Region’s deadlocked vote for its Nominating Committee member or alternate, to make the decision an ad hoc meeting of one State Board representative from each state in the Region could be called.

The Bylaws will be voted on at the Annual Business meeting on October 26 in Dana Point, CA.
