NASBA leaders recently welcomed 342 individuals representing 52 Boards of Accountancy during NASBA’s 2023 Regional Meetings. The meetings were held May 31-June 2, in Savannah, GA, (Eastern) and June 27-29, in Kansas City, MO (Western).  

Topping this year’s agenda were informative discussions on CPA Pipeline initiatives, peer review compliance, changes to CPE compliance, licensure pathways, and the latest developments regarding the CPA Evolution initiative. 

During the report from leadership, NASBA President and CEO Ken Bishop and NASBA Chair Richard Reisig shared their pleasure in the uptick of this year’s attendance numbers and agreed that CPA Evolution and the CPA Pipeline are the two most important endeavors for NASBA and its Board of Directors at this time. “CPA Evolution marks the biggest Examination change since the launch of the computerized Exam,” said Bishop. They also reported that NASBA is on track, on budget and prepared to go live with the new CPA Exam in early 2024. 

In addition to the daily general session presentations, meeting attendees also benefitted from participation in regional breakout sessions led by NASBA’s eight regional directors. Reports from the NASBA Center for the Public Trust, UAA Committee, Diversity Committee, Relations with Member Boards Committee, and NASBA CPA Pipeline Task Force were also presented during the respective meetings.  

A new board member orientation was also offered prior to each Regional Meeting to introduce new Board of Accountancy members to the NASBA mission, products and services, role of board members and the benefits of volunteer service.
