Here We Go Again – PCAOB Solicits Nominations for Standing Advisory Group

Picture Source

Those of you who have been reading the blog for a while know that I nominated myself for the Standing Advisory Group last year, and was not chosen.   I do not say rejected because, after feeling quite ignored, I later found a nice letter from Tom Ray in my mail, thanking me for my interest. 

I would like to be a member of this advisory group. After all, it needs more than just Lynn Turner and Cynthia Richson to raise the tough issues.

So how about it? Are any of my readers and/or current SAG members interested in seeing me and my stilettos at the meetings more often? I promise to behave and be respectful of my Big 4 colleagues in the SAG, at least during meetings.

If you’re interested in helping me achieve this career goal (and I don’t have many relevant ones left) contact me or submit a nominating form on my behalf. 

Your reward, beside the one provided when you get to your next life, will be dinner with me at the restaurant of your choice in Washington, DC.

Ask Michael David Thomas.   I’m no cheapo!
