In addition, James Kasim worked as an adjunct professor at the University of Southern California and served on the California Board of Accountancy’s Report Quality Monitoring Committee.
The California Board of Accountancy (CBA) is a self-funded government entity that serves California-based consumers and accountants by qualifying candidates for the National Uniform CPA Exam, certifying and licensing CPAs, registering CPA corporations and partnerships, and investigating complaints against individual accountants and accountancy firms. Currently, the CBA regulates more than 97,000 licensed accounting professionals in the state of California.
A large portion of the CBA’s work is performed by various committees, including the Report Quality Monitoring Committee. The group is responsible for ensuring that California CPAs’ financial reports follow proper accounting principles and comply with established financial reporting standards. Additionally, the committee can order licensed CPAs to complete continuing education to improve their professional competence. If the licensee fails to comply, the Report Quality Monitoring Committee also has the authority to pursue disciplinary action.
