The Bissett School of Business wishes to congratulate Associate Professor, Cathy Roy Heaton for her recent appointment to the User Advisory Council (UAC) of the Accounting Standards Board of Canada (AcSB). Cathy has been appointed for a three year term.
The UAC’s purpose is to “assist the AcSB in understanding how users, including investors and investment professionals, credit granters in financial institutions, equity and credit analysts, and rating agencies, use financial information. The Council is also intended to assist the AcSB by providing advice on standard-setting priorities, and on specific agenda projects.”
The combination of Cathy’s academic background and her finance and business career have proven to make her an ideal candidate. As the only academic on the current council, Cathy is excited to bring her academia perspective to this new role.
