The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy has named Louise Haberman vice president of information and research. Haberman, who works from NASBA's New York office, oversees the association's conference content and edits its monthly newsletter. She was previously director of information and research.
The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy has begun processing applications for CPA exams and licenses from candidates who received their education outside the United States. State officials in Kansas and Washington already are using the system and another dozen states are preparing to come on board.
"The complexity associated with accurately interpreting [...] ever changing rules, combined with the rapidly growing population of international examination candidates, makes now an ideal time for us to expand our focus into this area. Not doing so would have neglected one of the most critical stated needs of the individual State Boards of Accountancy, which would have been counter to NASBA’s core mission."
The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy Inc. has named Nashvillian Alfonzo Alexander as president of its Center for the Public Trust.
Currently serving as NASBA’s chief relationship officer, Alexander will take over as president of the entity’s ethics organization on Jan. 1. On that same date, Ken L. Bishop will succeed David A. Costello as NASBA president and CEO.
Alexander is a past chairman of the board of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes of Middle Tennessee, treasurer of the 100 Black Men of Middle Tennessee and a member of the Metropolitan Nashville Sports Authority Board of Directors. He earned a bachelor of science degree in business administration with an emphasis on human resources management from Tennessee Technological University. He also holds a master’s degree in business administration from Lipscomb University.
The Nashville-based National Association of State Boards of Accountancy and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants are taking public comments until mid-October on a number of proposed revisions to the continuing education requirements for CPAs. Most changes would add flexibility to the process.
Significant revisions are in the areas of group internet based learning and self-study programs; issuance requirements for half credits under self study programs; promotional/course announcement information for in-house training programs and alternate methods for calculating CPE credits for self-study programs.
The NASBA Center for the Public Trust has launched the Ethics Network, a premium fraternity that will promote proper leadership, intergrity and accountability. Subscribers will have access to webinars, speakers bureau opportunities and a resource library.
