Former state Treasurer Beth Pearce has been appointed to the board of trustees of the Financial Accounting Foundation, the organization that provides oversight of the financial standards-setting boards for U.S. companies and governments. Her term will run from Jan. 1, 2024, through Dec. 31, 2028.
Pearce currently serves as chair of the Governmental Accounting Standards Advisory Council, providing guidance and insights into government accounting standards to the council’s members.
“Treasurer Pearce has always been deeply committed to public service and improving the lives of those in our communities,” said Gov. Phil Scott. “I’m thrilled that she will continue to be able to give back in this new and important role, and I know she will be an incredible asset to the FAF Board of Trustees.”
As Vermont state treasurer, Pearce supported clean water initiatives, affordable housing, the VermontABLE program, local investments and pension reform. Notably, she played a pivotal role in safeguarding the defined benefit system for Vermont’s teachers and state and municipal employees.
