Annual Members Meeting

Haskin inducted into Oklahoma Accounting Hall of Fame

Jane Haskin, CPA, became the 61st inductee into the Oklahoma Accounting Hall of Fame during the OSCPA’s 101st Annual Members Meeting, dinner and awards ceremony on Friday, June 7, at the Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

Haskin, a life-long banking professional, became the newest member of an elite class of Oklahoma CPAs. The former Bethany Bank & Trust president and CEO grew up in Cushing, Oklahoma, and earned her accounting degree from the University of Central Oklahoma (then, Central State University). In 1981, she earned her CPA certificate, following in her Uncle Fred’s footsteps, and joined the OSCPA immediately after. In 1992, she joined the OSCPA’s Banking and Other Financial Institutions Committee, a committee she served on for more than 20 years in her 37 years of membership, including as chair for three years. During that time, she also became board liaison for the OSCPA’s Accounting Careers, Bylaws and Liaison with Educational Institutions Committees, to name a few. In 2000, she became senior vice president of commercial lending at Local Oklahoma Bank in Oklahoma City. In 2006, she was inducted into the Journal Record’s Woman of the Year Circle of Excellence.

Haskin has also been a dedicated member of the Oklahoma

Bankers Association and, in 2011, became that organization’s first female chairman of the board in its then 114-year history. Haskin continued to serve her community by volunteering to teach financial literacy classes for Junior Achievement and for the Financial Literacy Committee of the OSCPA. She’s been very active in the Optimists Club and in fundraising efforts for the YWCA of Oklahoma City. She became OSCPA’s chairman of the board for 2017-2018, when the OSCPA started its Centennial Celebration. The 2012 inductee in the Oklahoma Accounting Hall of Fame, Vicky Petete, CPA, said, “She is one of the many reasons that I am proud to be a CPA and a part of the CPA profession. What I admire most about her is not her achievements—which are many—but her willingness to share those achievements by giving back to others.”
