Hopkins named to FASB advisory board

Patrick Hopkins
Congratulations to accounting professor Patrick Hopkins, who has been named to the Financial Accounting Standards Advisory Council.

FASAC is a group of about 35 CEOs, CFOs, senior partners, academics and analysts who meet quarterly with the Financial Accounting Standards Board to advise board members on financial reporting issues. 

Hopkins, who is the Deloitte Foundation Accounting Faculty Fellow, was honored by the American Accounting Association earlier this year with the Distinguished Contributions to Accounting Literature Award for research that ultimately made it harder for companies to hide controversial accounting practices.
