New Chief of NABA

The Washington Post has an interview with Gregory Johnson, the recently installed executive director of the National Association of Black Accountants.
When you look at the number of African American CPAs in the country, by one estimate there are approximately 6,000. That's about 1 percent of all CPAs. That tells you mentors and role models are probably not there. How many moms have suggested to their kids, become a doctor, become a lawyer? Our motto is "lifting as we climb." We need to work on awareness, what the profession is about, and through that create opportunity for this generation.
