Lang appointed to AICPA subcommittee
Teresa Lang, associate professor of Accounting with Auburn University at Montgomery’s College of Business, was recently appointed to the Business Environment and Concepts (BEC) Subcommittee of the Examinations Group of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). Lang is one of 12 committee members, and is the only Education industry representative on the subcommittee. “I am very pleased to accept this appointment,” said Lang. “I have been a CPA for over 20 years and, of course, a member of the national organization. I am proud to serve the CPA profession in this capacity, and am excited at the prospect of working with the CPA Examination Group. This fulfills my long-term goal to serve at the national level.” Lang will travel to New York City four times during her appointment to attend committee meetings. The Board of Examiners Content Committee has four subcommittees, one for each of the four CPA Examination sections. One of Lang’s responsibilities while serving on the BEC subcommittee will include acquisition and review of test questions, review of test pools to support the Examinations, and review of questionable items. “Teresa has been training future accounting professionals over the past decade,” said Rhea Ingram, Dean of the College of Business. “She has earned multiple teaching recognitions/honors from the students, in addition to being a productive scholar researching on various accounting topics.” Auburn University at Montgomery’s School of Accountancy, created when the university elevated its accounting department within the College of Business, is the only accounting program in Montgomery and the River Region to earn discipline-specific accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
