Want to use your talents at the statewide level? Your opportunity awaits–the application period is open through Jan. 19 to serve on our statewide committees for 2018-19. From estate planning to technology, and from personal financial planning to taxation, there’s a committee meeting your interests and expertise. Serving on state committees allows you to work with your peers on projects that increase members’ technical knowledge, enhance the profession’s image and draw the best and brightest into accounting—all while you build leadership skills and make valuable contacts.

Please note: Current at-large committee members must re-apply, as terms do not carry over. If you will be serving as a chapter committee chair in 2018-19, then you will have an automatic seat on the corresponding state committee anddo not need to submit an application for that committee. Should you wish to serve on another committee, however, you must complete this application for consideration.

Committee appointments will be made in March/April 2018 and the committee term is May 1–April 30.
