Dave Simko, CPA installed as 2006-2007 chair of Ohio Society Executive Board.

David A. Simko, CPA, a partner with Ernst & Young in Cleveland, was sworn in as 97th chair of the Society's Executive Board during the June 22 Annual Meeting.


"We are responsible for the positive attributes of this profession: quality, integrity and community. We each need to make sure we are delivering value to the public interest and our employers through continuous lifelong learning," Simko said after his induction.

The installation also included induction of James G. Haubrock, CPA as chair-elect. Michael B. Klein, CPA will complete his two-year term as vice chair-finance. Seven other Society members were sworn in to start two-year terms as members of the Executive Board, including:

* Ken A. Dodson, CPA -- King Dodson Armstrong Financial Advisors, Columbus

* Brendan P. Fitzgerald, CPA -- Sustin Bartell Waldman & Fergus, LTD, Cleveland

* W. Michael Fritz, CPA -- Deloitte & Touche, Columbus

* Matthew E. Ganz, CPA -- Rea & Associates, Dublin

Bylaws vote approved during Annual Meeting

Unanimous approval of the members present at the Annual Meeting also set the stage for a vote of the membership to approve revisions to the Society's bylaws. Members receiving this issue are also receiving a supplement explaining the revisions along with a ballot to approve or reject the updated language.

The changes reflect advances in technology, changes in the profession's ethics enforcement program, and changes in Ohio law since the bylaws were last updated in 1997.

Key changes in the proposed bylaws revision include:

* Permitting increased use of e-mail for actions by the Society's governing bodies

* Adoption of recent changes to the Joint Ethics Enforcement Program administered by the AICPA

* A reorganization of the bylaws to combine similar provisions by topic

Members have until Sept. 4 to return ballots.

The 2006-07 Executive Board of The Ohio Society of CPAs was installed at the Annual Meeting in Columbus on June 22.
