Allow us a moment of seriousness here with a special request from the California Board of Accountancy:
The CBA has established a new advisory committee, known as the Mobility Stakeholder Group (MSG), and is seeking CPAs who may be willing to serve on the MSG. The MSG will advise the CBA on whether provisions of the practice privilege law satisfy the objectives of stakeholders of the accounting profession in California, and are consistent with the CBA’s duty to protect the public. This committee will be comprised of two CBA members, two CPAs representing the accounting profession, two consumer representatives and one member of CBA’s enforcement staff.
Here's where you come in, licensed California CPA in good standing. The CBA is looking for a few good CPAs to help figure this stuff out:
The MSG is comprised of two representatives of the accounting profession, two consumer representatives, two CBA members and one CBA staff member. The MSG members will be appointed at the March 2014 CBA meeting, and membership terms will continue until January 1, 2019. The MSG will be tasked with identifying the number and frequency of meetings; however it is anticipated the MSG will meet four to six times a year, with locations alternating between northern and southern California.
You get a daily per diem plus expenses and the good feels that come with doing something good for your profession.
