As NASBA's longest serving staff member, Louise represents NASBA in some of our most important committees and processes.

The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) has named Louise Dratler Haberman as Vice President of Information & Research. Previously, she served as NASBA’s Director of Information & Research, and is based in NASBA’s New York office.

In her role, Haberman is responsible for leading the Association’s information and research initiatives, developing NASBA’s annual and regional conference programming, serving as editor of NASBA’s long-standing State Board Report monthly newsletter, and serving as staff liaison to many NASBA Committees; most recently including the Uniform Accountancy Act Committee, the Regulatory Response Committee, the International Qualifications Appraisal Board and the Committee on Relations with Member Boards.

Ms. Haberman’s lengthy career with NASBA began with her work as a freelance editor for The State Board Report, which she still enjoys writing. In addition to her work in developing programs for NASBA’s annual and regional meetings, she is recognized for spearheading efforts to plan NASBA’s first Continuing Professional Education Conference, State Board Legal Counsel Conference and Ethics Conference.    

“As NASBA's longest serving staff member, Louise represents NASBA in some of our most important committees and processes including Regulatory Response, Uniform Accountancy Act, and liaison to our Relations with Member Boards Committee,” said NASBA President & CEO Ken Bishop. “Additionally, she is responsible for running our New York office. Her contributions to NASBA are tremendous and we look forward to her continued dedication and leadership for years to come.”

Prior to becoming a member of the NASBA staff, Haberman was editor of New Accountant magazine; a publication focused on issues of concern for college students beginning their careers in accounting.

Her first introduction to the accounting profession was her work for the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), where she was managing editor of Management Adviser magazine, an assistant editor of the Journal of Accountancy, and a contributing writer to The CPA Letter. She also created direct mail advertising for Law Journal Seminars Press and the Gale Research Company.

Ms. Haberman holds a baccalaureate from Brooklyn College and a master’s degree in journalism from Boston University’s School of Public Communications. A long-time resident of Jericho, NY, she is married to Jack Haberman, and her sons, Michael and Paul, are attorneys in the greater New York metropolitan area.

Celebrating more than 100 years of service, the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) serves as a forum for the nation’s Boards of Accountancy, which administer the Uniform CPA Examination, license more than 700,000 certified public accountants and regulate the practice of public accountancy in the United States.

NASBA’s mission is to enhance the effectiveness and advance the common interests of the Boards of Accountancy in meeting their regulatory responsibilities. The Association promotes the exchange of information among accountancy boards, serving the needs of the 55 U.S. jurisdictions.
