Building a Dynamic Ohio Accounting Workforce
Scott Wiley provides the executive vision for one of the nation’s top accounting associations. He leads a team of 40+ professionals that create and deliver innovative advocacy, education and business solutions for 85,000 CPAs and accounting professionals working in businesses of every size and sector across Ohio.
Since 2013, Wiley has repositioned the association to deliver greater member value in a fast-moving business environment. He has refocused staff resources, products and services and in 2016, launched a new mission, vision and brand. It reflects OSCPA’s commitment to advance and diversify the accounting profession and support members as Ohio’s top strategic financial advisors.
He sets the association’s bold annual advocacy agenda, collaborating with government and CPA leaders to advance tax and regulatory changes that benefit Ohio’s economy and improve its business environment.
Influencing the national policy agenda for the accounting profession is a top priority for Wiley, who represents The Ohio Society of CPAs and the national association community on Capitol Hill. He does this through his active participation with the CPA Society State Executives Association and as Immediate Past Chair of ASAE, the American Society of Association Executives.
The Ohio Society of CPAs is recognized as a key leader in evolving CPA continuing education. Ohio was the first state CPA association to launch a successful online learning platform and Ohio was the first state to approve CPA continuing education credit for nano learning.
This strategic move emphasizes that learning formats must be flexible and evolve to meet the needs of a new generation of professionals. Wiley’s efforts earned him a place on The American Institute of CPAs Future of Learning Task Force in 2013.
