Guam - The Guam Board of Accountancy has donated $1 million to the UOG Endowment Foundation for the creation and implementation of the Herminia Dierking and John Philips Visiting Professor and Lecturer Program.

Guam Accountancy Board director Dave Sanford said, "Our hope is to bring in visiting professor for our lecture series or teaching and that kind of thing to get the outside expertise that we aren't getting today and supplement the staff and faculty for the accounting program itself."

He says part of the emphasis is to maintain the equality with the national standards of the US for certified public accountants he adds that there is a need to increase accounting requirements to 150 hours of education so that Guam CPA's will be able to practice in the US.
