The presentation, given by John Lacey, professor of accountancy at CSULB, is open to the public and will include a continental breakfast. Atendees can receive two Continuing Professional Education credits for the California Board of Accountancy. The event costs $25 and parking is free.

Lacey, the Ernst and Young Research Fellow, has been teaching in CSULB’s Department of Accountancy since 1989. He previously taught at the Leventhal School of Accounting at USC, where he also earned his MBA and bachelor’s of science degrees, and taught at the Anderson Graduate School of Management at UCLA. He earned his Ph.D. at UCLA with a major in accounting information systems and minors in economics and mathematics.

In June 2009, Lacey received the 2008-09 Outstanding Accounting Educator award from the California Society of Certified Public Accountants for his nearly 40 years of service in both collegiate and industry accounting.

At CSULB, Lacey teaches financial and international accounting as well as intermediate accounting, which is the core course in the accounting curriculum.

“John Lacey is one of our best teachers who is recognized by both students and the CPA profession, and he always helps our students see how accounting concepts apply in practice,” said CBA Dean Michael Solt. “His presentation on fair value accounting will help accounting professionals understand new developments in the field.”
