    Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley Appointed to National Accounting Advisory Board

    Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley has been appointed to the Governmental Accounting Standards Advisory Council, a group that offers recommendations on policy to a national board that sets accounting standards.

    Whitley is one of five new members of the advisory council appointed by the Board of Trustees of the Financial Accounting Foundation. Whitley will serve a two-year term on the 30-member advisory council beginning on January 1, 2012. The council is responsible for advising the Governmental Accounting Standards Board on technical issues, project priorities and other matters that affect setting standards for state and local governments' accounting and financial reporting.

    "As a certified public accountant, I am proud to represent my profession's viewpoint on these important issues," Whitley said. "As an elected county official, I am proud to represent the concerns that local government, and especially county government, may have regarding how standards for accounting and financial reporting are set."

    Judge Whitley, the immediate past president of the National Association of Counties, was nominated to the advisory board by NACo. He has been Tarrant County Judge since 2007 and prior to that served as Tarrant County Precinct 3 Commissioner since 1997.
