At the June 2004 NASBA Regional Meetings, then President David A. Costello, CPA, unveiled early plans for the NASBA Center for the Public Trust (CPT). He told those meetings: “The Center will focus on the best practices throughout the U.S. – and maybe they will catch on.”

With the selection of Donald H. Burkett, CPA, to serve as Chair of the CPT, Mr. Costello is stepping away from the leadership role of the organization he envisioned more than a decade ago. In explaining, back in 2004, the need for the CPT, he wrote: “Let’s be known as the regulators who are justifiably proud of the education, experience and examination success of our CPAs – but who are especially laudable for our attention to the ethical grounding of our licensees.”
