The Ohio Society of CPAs Nominating Committee has unanimously recommended Robert Zunich, CPA/ABV, as OSCPA's 2012-2013 chair-elect candidate for the Executive Board. If accepted by members, he will serve as chair of the Board for the 2013-2014 activity year.
If elected chair, Zunich plans to focus on several issues facing the profession, including standards overload and fees.
“Our profession has a problem with regulation overload,” he said. “It’s amazing to me that we can have three to four partners sitting in a room talking about a technical issue, and we struggle with compliance. This doesn’t seem right.”
He said that poses further challenges to CPAs, who must turn around and explain issues to customers in a way they can understand.
The chair-elect serves a three-year term on the Executive Board, one year each as chair-elect, chair and past chair.
