A local certified public accountant was appointed Friday by Gov. Sonny Perdue to serve on the Georgia State Board of Accountancy.
Wanda W. Goodson, 60, of Dawsonville, is the owner of Goodson Accounting and Tax Services, which has been in operation in Dawson County since 1977.
Goodson said the appointment is an honor.
“Through my membership in the Georgia Association of Accounting and Tax Professionals and the National Society of Accountants, I have worked closely with the State Board of Accountancy for many years,” she said. “I would like to thank Gov. Perdue for the opportunity to continue this association with the board.”
Created in 1908 by the Georgia General Assembly, the State Board of Accountancy regulates the practice and certification of public accountants.
The board also has the authority to adopt rules, set standards for licensure, adopt mandatory standards of professional conduct, and investigate and discipline unauthorized, negligent or incompetent practice.
The appointment term is four years.
