Spring 2014 News
Accountancy Professor John Lacey has been reelected to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Governing Council. Professor Lacey is also newly elected to the California Society of CPAs (CalCPA) Governing Council. While having attended the CalCPA Council meetings as a non-voting observer because he was one of the elected representatives that represents California on the AICPA Council, Professor Lacey was separately elected to be a voting member of CalCPA Council. Both positions are for three year terms. These are the bodies that set policy for our professional organizations. Founded in 1887, AICPA is the national professional organization of CPAs, and CalCPA was founded in 1909. Few academics involved in professional governance in Accounting and we are proud that Professor Lacey has been selected to represent the academic community on these councils.
