Board of Accountancy: News

Seeking Public Board Members!

The Division of Professions and Occupations (DPO) is seeking public board members to aid in its consumer-protection mission. DPO is the largest Division within the Department of Regulatory Agencies and oversees 345,000 licensees within more than 50 professions, occupations, and entities in Colorado.

Public board service is highly rewarding and has a strong impact on the well-being of Colorado citizens, many of whom are consumers of the professions, occupations and businesses over which DPO has regulatory authority. If you are someone who enjoys contributing to your community, and would like to serve as a public board member, please apply online on the Governor's website.

Expertise in a specific profession or field is not required for public board service. Public board members are needed for the following Boards.

  • Board of Accountancy
  • Colorado Passenger Tramway Safety Board
  • Nurse-Physician Advisory Task Force for Colorado Healthcare (NPATCH)
  • State Board of Licensed Professional Counselor Examiners
  • State Board of Marriage and Family Therapist Examiners

More details on public board service can be located in the 2018 Boards and Commissions Book.


Sunset Review Begins

The Colorado Office of Policy, Research and Regulatory Reform (COPRRR) is conducting a sunset review of the Board of Accountancy. Analysis in a sunset review is performed to determine whether the regulatory program is necessary and should be continued, modified or eliminated. This review will produce a report with recommendations to the Colorado General Assembly and result in subsequent legislation based on the recommendations in the report.

Your input is an important component of a successful sunset review. If you would like to submit comments online, please submit the COPRRR online comment form
