Marilyn Pendergast, CPA, a shareholder of Urbach Kahn & Werlin PC, has been appointed chair of the Ethics Committee of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC).

The Ethics Committee develops guidance on professional ethics and promotes its understanding and acceptance by member bodies. IFAC's current membership consists of 128 professional accountancy bodies in 91 countries, representing more than two million accountants. The Ethics Committee monitors and stimulates debate on a wide range of ethical issues to ensure that its guidance is responsive to the expectations and challenges of individuals, businesses, financial institutions, and others relying on accountants' work.

In addition to her involvement with the IFAC, Pendergast currently serves on the board of directors of the AICPA and is a past president of the New York State Society of CPAs. She was also the first non-attorney appointed chairperson of the New York Supreme Court­Third Judicial Department Committee on Professional Standards and has served, by appointment of the New York State Comptroller, on the local Government Investment Practices Task Force.

The CPA Journal is broadly recognized as an outstanding, technical-refereed publication aimed at public practitioners, management, educators, and other accounting professionals. It is edited by CPAs for CPAs. Our goal is to provide CPAs and other accounting professionals with the information and news to enable them to be successful accountants, managers, and executives in today's practice environments.
