Happy 100th Birthday ASCPA.  I am incredibly proud to be a member of the ASCPA.  After having worked with our fine staff and many of my fellow Alabama CPA’s, I am convinced that we have one of the best organizations I have ever had the privilege of being a part of.  It was a sincere pleasure to serve as your president and I most enjoyed getting around the state meeting many of you face to face.  My thanks to everyone who serves our organization selflessly to make it better for all of us.

My professional career in the auditing/accounting field, whether in private practice, the non-profit sector, or public enterprise, has been a journey of excitement and gratefulness.
I am beholden to be one of more than 6,500 Alabama CPAs in the industry. Being raised in a rural town of Newbern in Perry County, Alabama, I understand and appreciate the value of the industry and the ASCPA. As such, I am openly willing to assist in cultivating and coaching future accounting professionals in the industry. Congratulations ASCPA on your Centennial Celebration!

“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.” 1 Corinthians 15:10 (ESV)

When I had my first baby in 1977, the Alabama State Board of Public Accountancy had never had a CPA candidate who had passed the exam, but who was going on maternity leave before completing the experience requirement! I had to wait two months before learning whether I had to start all over again. It was determined that if I returned to work within six months, my previous experience would still count. I became a new mom and new CPA at the same time.

I never worked in Alabama when I was in the profession, so my only frame of reference for legendary CPAs is in the education realm. However, I can say with certainty that Dr. Wayne Alderman can be credited with so many accounting-related successes at Auburn University. He’s about to retire from AU with nearly 40 years of service to our students, which is pretty amazing!
