The board of directors of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants unaminously voted to recommend Barry C. Melancon as the group's next president.

If confirmed by the governing council in a vote at the end of this month, Mr. Melancon would begin serving a five-year term beginning July 1.

Mr. Melancon is executive director of the Society of Louisiana CPAs, headquartered in Kenner, La.

The current president, Philip B. Chenok, is retiring on June 30, after 15 years in that position.
