Audit Standards Board Members' Biographies

The Auditing Standards Board consists of 19 members and includes 5 members from local, regional and other non big four national firms; 5 members nominated by NASBA; 4 members from the big four firms; and 5 users and public members. Up to twenty five percent of the ASB may be non-AICPA members. Customarily, one seat is reserved for a government official or an auditor of government entities, and one seat is reserved for an academician. The Director of the AICPA Audit and Attest Standards nominates the ASB Chair and in consultation with the ASB Chair, nominates members of the ASB. The AICPA Board of Directors approves nominations of the ASB Chair and ASB members. Each member normally serves for three one-year terms, with reappointment for each term dependent on satisfactory performance.
