One of a Talented Group of CPAs Prepared to Help Lead the Profession into the Future
Nathaniel Goldman, Senior Tax Associate, PricewaterhouseCoopers, recently graduated from the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) Leadership Academy. Goldman was one of 37 future leaders of the accounting profession who participated in an intensive four day program in Durham, N.C., which concluded in October.
This year’s class discussed important issues facing the profession and participated in leadership development sessions with some of the profession’s most influential leaders, including AICPA Chair (2014-2015) Tommye Barie, CPA, and Barry Melancon, CPA, CGMA, the Institute’s president and CEO.
“Leadership Academy is a commitment from the AICPA to develop the next generation of CPAs to lead the profession and ensure that it continues to thrive. This year’s class is an extremely talented and diverse group that will continue to make impressive contributions to the accounting profession for years to come,” said Tommye Barie, AICPA chair.
The Georgia Society of CPAs (GSCPA) was proud to have Nathaniel Goldman represent Georgia in this prestigious group and to sponsor his participation in the AICPA’s 2015 Leadership Academy.
“On behalf of The Georgia Society of CPAs, I would like to offer my congratulations on graduating from this great program. We are proud to have this bright, young professional as a part of GSCPA’s membership and look forward to sharing many more successes during Nathaniel’s career,” said GSCPA CEO, Boyd Search.

This year’s class included representatives from numerous states, as well as the Guam. Participants were selected from public accounting firms of all sizes, business and industry, education and government.
