Ohio’s Secretary of State Jon Husted publicly thanked the Ohio Society of CPAs for their their role in helping to drive business in every industry in Ohio.
Husted joined joined Scott Wiley, CAE, president and CEO of OSCPA in Akron last week, where he was speaking at the kick off of Advance, a new OSCPA program which explores challenges and trends in today’s increasingly global business environment.
Each month, the Ohio Secretary of State profiles a different industry or profession for its role in driving a more positive business climate in Ohio. April’s campaign, By the Numbers … How CPAs Drive Business, recognizes the work CPAs and their teams do every day to help companies across Ohio succeed.
“There are over 85,000 CPAs and accounting professionals in Ohio representing small businesses and job creators across the state,” Husted said. “CPAs help position businesses to flourish in the global economy and also work with public officials to simplify the tax code and create policies that make sense for business in Ohio.”
Wiley is traveling the state over the next two weeks to talk face-to-face with thousands of CPAs at Advance sessions in eight Ohio cities.
Topics will include:
- Talent management and generational issues and the impact to organizations
- Capitalizing on the shifting business landscape
- Trends in the accounting profession
- Leveraging technology to enhance productivity and collaboration
“In today’s world, disruption is the new reality,” Wiley said. “CPAs are working with companies across Ohio to develop new strategies to grow Ohio’s businesses. We appreciate Sec. Husted’s recognition that CPAs are vital partners in this process.”
