GREENSBORO – DMJ & Co., PLLC (DMJ), a U.S. Top 300 North Carolina CPA and accounting firm, is pleased to announce that Arthur M. Winstead, Jr., CPA, Partner, has been appointed as a member of the 2019-2020 Uniform Accountancy Act Committee. The committee’s charge is to “oversee the Uniform Accountancy Act and related Model Rules and recommend amendments to the Act.” The Uniform Accountancy Act (UAA) is an “evergreen” model licensing law developed to provide a uniform approach to regulation of the accounting profession.  The UAA provides a comprehensive system for enhancing public protection, facilitating consumer choice, and supporting the efficient operation of the capital markets.

A model bill to regulate the practice of public accountancy was first published in 1916 by the American Institute of Accountants, the predecessor of the AICPA. In 1984, the AICPA and NASBA published the first joint model bill, later renamed the Uniform Accountancy Act.

Since 1908, NASBA has served as a forum for the nation’s 55 State Boards of Accountancy, which administer the Uniform CPA Examination, license more than 650,000 Certified Public Accountants, and regulate the practice of public accountancy in the United States. Regarded as a cornerstone of support within the organization, NASBA appoints as many as 30 committees and task forces annually. Through the work of these committees, current and emerging issues affecting the state boards of accountancy are addressed.

Arthur M. Winstead, CPA joined DMJ in 1978 and was named a partner in 1984. He is a general services partner in the Greensboro office and is the firm-wide Accounting, Auditing, and Quality Control Partner. He serves as team captain and team member for on-site peer reviews and off-site engagement reviews throughout the country and State of North Carolina. Art is the current A&A Consultant-Director for CPAmerica, Inc., and has also served on many community and professional boards and committees throughout the state.

In addition, Art is a consulting and testifying expert witness on accounting, auditing, and financial matters. His clients have included state and federal government agencies and major law firms, involving both commercial litigation (assisting both plaintiff and defense) and white-collar criminal defense matters. He has either provided testimony or been deposed in local District and Superior Court and U.S. District Court. Art has also authored numerous CPE courses and articles regarding accounting, auditing, fraud, and ethics.
