State Board Report

October 2016

It was a standing room only crowd when the Accountancy Board of Ohio held its September 9 meeting at the University of Cincinnati. Over 200 students were in attendance. News of the revised Uniform CPA Examination, to be inaugurated in April 2017, brought an attentive crowd to listen to NASBA Executive Vice President and COO Colleen K. Conrad’s presentation and pick up the information she had to distribute about the forthcoming Examination. “They were able to ask Ms. Conrad the questions that we are getting at the Board office,” said John E. Patterson, the Board’s Executive Director.

In preparation for the Board’s open meeting, Board Chair James Carroll, an alumnus of the school, Mr. Patterson and other representatives of the Board met with heads of the UC accountancy department, both the undergraduate and master’s programs, to advise them Ms. Conrad would be present to answer questions. As a further inducement for student attendance, a professor promised to award attendees an additional point on their scores on a class examination.

Mr. Patterson said the Board’s open meeting was so popular that they expect to schedule a similar one at a Cleveland school next year.
