NEW YORK – (June 14, 2018) – Jan C. Herringer, CPA, partner at BDO USA, LLP, one of the largest accounting and advisory firms, began her one-year term as president of the New York State Society of CPAs (NYSSCPA) on June 1.

A member of the NYSSCPA since 2005, one of Herringer’s goals as president will be diversity and inclusion within the profession, expanding the work of the NYSSCPA Diversity and Inclusion Committee, which aims to attract and advance aspiring professionals regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or disability status. She has been an integral part of the NYSSCPA’s Women’s Initiative for the profession, which will culminate with a Women’s Initiative Conference in January 2019.

Prior to her presidency, Herringer also served as a member of the NYSSCPA Board of Directors and Executive Committee, and as past chair of the Accounting and Auditing Oversight and Auditing Standards committees, and was a member of the Board’s Audit Committee in 2014. Throughout her membership, she served on multiple statewide and chapter committees. Herringer is the current member of the NYSSCPA Legislative Task Force. She also serves as a member of the governing council for the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA).

Herringer is currently BDO USA’s National Assurance Group partner, responsible for ensuring firm compliance with all applicable auditing standards through the review, development, and updating of firm methodology and supporting forms and templates, as well as responding to questions from the field on audit-related matters. She actively participates in the standards-setting process through the development of comment letters on auditing and reporting matters.  Herringer spent more than 11 years with BDO as part of the firm’s National Assurance practice, focusing on the auditing standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), the AICPA’s Auditing Standards Board and the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board.

“Jan’s inclusion initiatives will be crucial in continuing our goal of building a diversified profession that values and attracts the best talent for the future of the profession,” said Joanne S. Barry, NYSSCPA Executive Director and CEO.  “That, coupled with Jan’s respect on a national level in the auditing standards arena, will provide a year of robust representation for the members of the NYSSCPA.”

Herringer received her B.A. in economics from SUNY Cortland, her M.S. in economics from The New School, and her M.B.A. in accounting from CUNY’s Baruch College (Zicklin School of Business). She lives in Westfield, N.J., with her husband, William.
