FAE Trustees

The Foundation for Accounting Education of the New York State Society of CPAs is governed by a 12-member board of trustees that includes three officers: the president, secretary and treasurer. The trustees’ three-year terms are evenly staggered, so three vacancies occur each year in addition to the three slots available to the NYSSCPA Board. FAE’s Board of Trustees acts to fill vacancies in the three-year positions on the FAE Board, but its choice is limited to the six or more candidates identified by the NYSSCPA’s board of directors. The NYSSCPA’s Board of Directors Selections Subcommittee is charged with identifying individuals qualified to serve on the trustee board.
