Dalby, Wendland & Co., P.C., is pleased to announce Spencer J. Adleman recently attained the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation after passing the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination, which is set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. The Uniform CPA Examination protects the public interest by helping to ensure that only qualified individuals become licensed as U.S. Certified Public Accountants.
Spencer is a staff accountant with Dalby Wendland’s audit team. He originally joined Dalby Wendland as an intern in January of 2018. He then joined the Firm full time after graduating, with business honors, with a BS in accounting from Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, CO. While Spencer gets the opportunity to help clients from a variety of industries, he particularly enjoys working alongside clients in the nonprofit sector. Spencer is a professional member of the American Institute of CPAs and Colorado Society of CPAs. Spencer’s community efforts include being the Grand Valley Kennel Club (GVKC) Chief Ring Steward for the annual GVKC show and serving as a board member for the Palisade Church of the Nazarene.
To attain a CPA license, qualified applicants must pass a four-part exam with 14 hours of testing in auditing and attestation, business environment and concepts, financial accounting and reporting, and regulation. The test is one of four requirements to attain CPA licensure in Colorado – education, ethics discipline, and experience is also needed. To maintain the CPA certification, licensees are required to take annual continuing professional education courses and other opportunities for professional development.
We congratulate Spencer for his accomplishment!
