50 years ago, Frank Ross, a Kittitian living in New York, sat with 8 other men in his living room on a mission to elevate blacks in the accounting profession and founded the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA). There were less than 150 black CPA’s in 1968 and now 50 years later there are over 200,000 – thanks in large part to NABA.
Last night, 50 years later, Mrs Dinichi Zenniere Bowry-Thomas was honored and humbled, as a Kittitian, to receive the National Achievement In Industry at NABA’s 50th Anniversary Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Mrs Bowry-Thomas was recognised for her professional excellence The National Association of Black Accountants Awarded her for Achievements in the Industry by NABA. As Treasurer and Professional Development Chair for the Columbus, Ohio Chapter of NABA, she continues to be an advocate for minority students and professionals and for connecting companies in the city with this talent pool.
Zenniere is the proud Daughter of Robert and Zita Bowry and the sister of Maritza Bowry the present Financial Comptroller at TDC, one of the largest Group of Companies in St.Kitts-Nevis.
