Since the January Board of Directors Meeting, the Regional Directors have all held Regional Conference Calls with their states’ Board Chairs and Executive Directors. After summarizing the NASBA Board’s meeting, the Regional Directors asked the State Boards to share recent developments in their jurisdictions. Some of the items discussed included:
Many Boards are working on CPE rules, using the Model Rules that were distributed with the Eighth Edition of the Uniform Accountancy Act for reference. Discussions are going on in the State Boards about the acceptance of nano and blended learning, as well as the requirement for 50 percent of the courses to be technical.
Several states are considering legislation that would waive fees for active military spouses or expedite their licensing. These and other bills that might impact the Boards are being tracked by NASBA Director of Legislative and Governmental Affairs John Johnson, and he provided input with NASBA Vice President-State Board Relations Dan Dustin to the Regional calls.
Moderating the calls were: Northeast Regional Director Catherine R. Allen (NY), Southwest Regional Directors C. Jack Emmons (NM), Great Lakes Regional Director Sheldon P. Holzman (IL), Central Regional Director Sharon A. Jensen (MN), Mountain Regional Director Nicola Neilon (NV), Pacific Regional Director Katrina Salazar (CA), Middle Atlantic Regional Director Stephanie M. Saunders (VA) and Southeast Regional Director Casey Stuart (TN).
