Darla Moore School of Business


School of Accounting Advisory Board

Along with the changing times, Friends of Accounting (FAD) has also seen some changes. These include an updated name – the School of Accounting (SOA) Advisory Board. While the name has changed, the mission remains the same with a continued focus on strengthening the relationships between the SOA and its alumni and the business community, the faculty, and the students.

The general objectives of the SOA Advisory Board are to assist in advancing the quality of accounting programs at the University of South Carolina and to enhance communication and interaction among faculty, students, alumni and friends of the School of Accounting in order to establish and nurture mutually beneficial relationships.

Membership is open to any person who supports the objectives of the School of Accounting.  All degree recipients of the Darla Moore School of Business whose degrees include majors, specializations or fields in accounting are considered to be passive members of the SOA Advisory Board by virtue of this standing.  Those interested in serving as a director of the SOA Advisory Board should be active in providing connections with alumni, bringing new ideas to the board, and helping to accomplish board goals.  To learn more about working with the SOA Advisory Board or to be considered for a director position, contact the School of Accounting Chair, Mark Cecchini, or a member of the SOA Advisory Board Executive Committee.
