Board of Certified Public Accountants
About the Board
The Board consists of five members appointed by the governor for three-year terms. Members are eligible for reappointment to one additional three-year term and may be reappointed after the lapse of one year after serving two consecutive terms. No political split or senate confirmation is required. Members of the Board must be citizens of the United States and residents of Wyoming. Four members of the Board must hold certified public accountant certificates issued under the laws of Wyoming and be in good standing as certified public accountants. One member of the Board must be a member of the general public.
Service on the Board requires one to set aside the concerns of the profession and focus on public protection. Board members must remain objective and independent in all aspects of their service on the Board. Acting in the Public's interest in this capacity can be time consuming, challenging and rewarding. Board members are compensated as legislators for time spent on Board activities and are reimbursed for travel and expenses as state employees. If you are interested in becoming a Board member, please visit the Governor's website.
