Message from the TACUA President

I remember well my first TACUA conference in June of 2001 never having a thought that I would serve as a future Board member and President. I appreciate the opportunity to serve as the new TACUA President. TACUA has been a quality resource not only for CPE but also for providing great networking opportunities to interact with fellow auditing professionals. It is these relationships that provide for professional growth and development as an auditor for an institution of higher education.

At the March 2015 TACUA Board meeting in New Braunfels, the Board elected two new members; Jason Mallory from Texas State Technical College System and Dana Nuber from UT-Arlington. Welcome!

The past conference in New Braunfels was a success once again. I thank my fellow Board members for the time and effort they put in to make the conference happen. My fellow Board members and I will be working hard to continue the TACUA trend of providing quality, stimulating, and affordable CPE and networking opportunities. We hope to see you at TACUA 2016!
