NASBP CPA Advisory Council (CPAAC)

NASBP is proud to announce the inauguration of an exciting new initiative—the NASBP Certified Public Accountant Advisory Council (CPAAC). The CPAAC is comprised of eight CPAs, and one ex officio participant, with knowledge and experience on accounting issues in various industries, including contract and commercial surety, construction, and government contracts. 

The mission statement for the CPA Advisory Council states as follows:

The NASBP CPA Advisory Council is constituted for the purpose of serving as a resource team to NASBP and providing substantive content to NASBP for articles, programs, and presentations on tax and other financial issues regarding surety, government contracts, and construction law topics for the betterment of the surety industry.

The eight accountants and the ex officio participant who serve on the CPAAC, whose photographs appear below with links to their resumes, will provide articles for the various NASBP publications, including Surety Bond Quarterly and Pipeline; participate in NASBP Virtual Seminars; develop articles for SuretyLearn.org; assist in the development of various online courses; and provide in-person presentations on various topics at the Annual Meeting, Regional Meetings, and special conferences and seminars. The CPAs will coordinate their NASBP activities with General Counsel Martha Perkins. They have kindly agreed to serve on the CPAAC in a volunteer capacity and will receive no compensation for their time and services. 

Please read the resumes of the distinguished CPAs who serve on the inaugural NASBP Certified Public Accountant Advisory Council and welcome them as a valuable NASBP “resource team”:

John Corcoran
CICPAC Executive Director
Serving on the CPAAC
as Ex Officio

This new initiative follows closely and is modeled on the highly successful and robust NASBP Attorney Advisory Council (AAC), which was inaugurated in March 2015. It was at the suggestion of John Corcoran, Executive Director of CICPAC, who recognized and voiced the success of the AAC, that NASBP began consideration of creating the CPAAC. NASBP is pleased that John Corcoran has agreed to serve as an ex officio participant on the CPAAC. 

NASBP is grateful to have the benefit of the excellent informational content from those serving on the CPAAC, to enhance NASBP’s already robust educational offerings to its members, affiliates, and associates and to the public about suretyship, construction, and government contracts.
