Vermont Business Magazine -- Vermont State Treasurer Beth Pearce has been elected president of the National Association of Auditors, Comptrollers, and Treasurers (NASACT), a nonpartisan organization made up of state government finance leaders in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories.
“I am honored to begin my work as president of the National Association of Auditors, Comptrollers, and Treasurers,” said Treasurer Pearce. “NASACT plays the important role of bringing together government finance experts from across the country, so we can work collaboratively to address challenges facing the states. I would like to thank 2019 NASACT president, Comptroller Clark Partridge, for his leadership. As we look ahead to 2020, I welcome the chance to partner with public finance leaders to build government transparency, accountability, and integrity.”
NASACT is an organization for state officials tasked with the financial management of state government. The Association plans and manages training and technical assistance programs; monitors and responds to federal legislation and agency developments that have an impact on state government; and uses its expertise to respond to technical standards-setting bodies, helping to ensure the highest levels of government transparency, accountability and integrity.
Prior to becoming NASACT President, Treasurer Pearce served on the association’s Executive Committee and was First Vice President during NASACT’s 2019 term. Treasurer Pearce has also served as President of both the National Association of State Treasurers (NAST) and the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA).
“Organizations like NASACT play an important role in setting state and federal government policy. I look forward to bringing the perspective of Vermont to the table as we work to ensure excellence in government finance.”
