Anoop Mehta has been nominated to chair the AICPA board of directors in 2022-23. The AICPA announced Mehta’s pending election on Dec. 18 and will formally elect him during a vote of the AICPA’s governing council in May.
Mehta is president of Science Systems and Applications of Lanham, Md., and served as chair of the board of directors for the Maryland Association of CPAs (MACPA) from 2012-13. He will serve as AICPA vice chair under current chair Bill Pirolli before taking the helm of the association in May 2022.
“I don’t think I would have even been considered for this role had it not been for the MACPA and everything the association’s leaders have done for me for the past 20 years,” he says. “For years, I have been surrounded by people who have gone out of their way to support me and my career. Now, I get to serve in a position that allows me to do the same for others.”
