Following the AICPA's lead, the New Jersey Society of CPAs has issued its own Diversity Commitment Statement. The NJSCPA is among the first state societies to formalize its commitment to diversity in the accounting community. Executive Director Merryl A. Bauer plans to publicize the statement throughout the society's chapters, committees, and leadership. The text of the statement is as follows:

The New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants is committed to being recognized as a premier statewide professional organization. To achieve this objective, the Society must lead in encouraging, valuing, and fostering diversity in its membership and in the workforce. We reaffirm the importance of efforts which lead to diversifying our profession and promoting workforce diversity. Therefore, in principle and in practice, the NJSCPA will continue to identify, recognize, and support strategies and efforts within the organization and the profession that are dedicated to achieving the NJSCPA's diversity objective. *
