The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board is soliciting nominations for members of its Standing Advisory Group.

Created in 2003 to assist the board in carrying out its standards-setting responsibilities for auditing, the group consists of 31 members with expertise in a variety of fields, including accounting, auditing, corporate finance, corporate governance and investing in public companies.

The Board solicits nominations and re-nominations annually and is currently seeking to fill 14 positions. Appointments are for two-year terms.

Members will be selected by the board based on nominations, including self-nominations, received from any person or organization. Current members may be re-nominated for another term. The nomination forms are available under the "Standards" section on the board's Web site,, and are due by June 16.

Appointments will be announced by the end of October, and the new terms will begin in January 2007. The group is chaired by PCAOB chief auditor Thomas Ray.
