    Kathleen Lorraine Casper

    On August 14, 2014, the American Accounting Association lost one if its own:  Kathy Casper. Many of you got to know Kathy during her 16 years with the Association.  As the Web and Database Project Manager, she was instrumental in moving us into the 21st century.  In fact, she worked on early web pages and independently designed, developed and implemented our annual meeting system, enhancing it annually based on the feedback she received from the many volunteers who worked with her. She also implemented the new segment meeting system that was introduced over the past year.

    Outside of work, Kathy was very active in the Faith Lutheran Church where she provided service in many ways.  Having done missionary work in Haiti in 2005, Kathy was devoted to fundraising for Haitian children's education and care.  She was also a passionate writer, publishing many articles and poetry.

    Kathy’s quick wit, creativity, broad smile and kind heart will be deeply missed by all who knew her.  If you have memories of Kathy you’d like to share with her sister and three daughters, please email them to info@aaahq.org.  Additionally, in Kathy’s honor, charitable donations can be made to the Faith Lutheran Church for the Haiti Fund care of Faith Lutheran Church, 7750 Beneva Road, Sarasota, FL.

    Wilson Earns AICPA's Distinguished Achievement in Accounting Education Award

    G. Peter Wilson, Carroll School of Management at Boston College, was presented with the AICPA's Distinguished Achievement in Accounting Education Award by Bob Harris, chair of the AICPA, during the Institute’s spring meeting.

    Upon acceptance of the award, Wilson talked about the importance of teaching students how to answer open-ended questions. He noted there is an over-reliance on testing students using multiple choice or true and false questions. “We put the next generation of CPAs at great risk,” he said. “The next generation will run the risk of being outsourced. Teach students to answer open-ended questions and [they] can gain competitive advantage by becoming proficient in this area.”
