06-27-17 Patsy BrownCHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Patsy Brown, Chesterfield County’s accounting director, has been named to the Governmental Accounting Standards Advisory Council as the National Association of Counties representative.

The council consults with the Governmental Accounting Standards Board, which is an independent, private-sector organization that establishes accounting and financial reporting standards for state and local governments in the United States that follow generally accepted accounting principles. As a member of the council, Brown will provide input and guidance on technical issues and other things that impact accounting and financial reporting for state and local governments.

“I am humbled and excited about the opportunity to represent the National Association of Counties on the council as a preparer of financial information,” Brown said. “My financial reporting experience with Chesterfield County provides a strong foundation for making contributions toward the goal of improving accounting standards for governments.”

Brown was appointed director of accounting for Chesterfield in 2010, after serving as assistant director of the department for more than 20 years. Her responsibilities include financial reporting, financial systems, audit coordination, debt post-issuance compliance, and disbursements for the county and the school board.

“Pasty has committed her public sector career to the highest of standards in her profession,” said Allan Carmody, the county’s finance director. “She not only abides by such standards but has built a team that has bought in to that approach, a sign of a true leader. This appointment is a high honor and well earned.”

Brown has been appointed to a term ending Dec. 31, 2018.
