Task Force created to review role and composition of governing council.

As a result of discussions last year by the AICPA's governing Council, the board of directors and the Group of 100, the Task Force on the Role and Responsibilities of AICPA Council has been formed. The new task force's charge is to evaluate the manner in which Council representation is determined and the manner in which the Council conducts its activities. Special consideration will be given to communications and the relationship of Council with the membership at large and the board of directors. Consisting of members from the various member segments, the task force will recommend any and all changes it believes would better enhance the Council process, communications and representation of the membership as a whole. Timothy M. O'Brien, a former member of Council and president of the American Humane Society, is chairing the task force.

A preliminary report is expected to be provided at the July board of directors' meeting, with the goal of a full report presented to Council members at the fall Council meeting. Members who wish to provide comments regarding the task force's charge should e-mail Jay Rothberg at
