He was chairman of the Auditing Standards Board and the Private Companies Practice Section Executive Committee, and the president of the Accounting Research Association.

 

In 2002, he was appointed by former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker to the Government Accountability Office’s Advisory Committee on Auditing Standards.

 

Monk has served on the Florida Institute of CPAs’ Board of Governors and has taught auditing as an adjunct faculty member of the University of Florida’s School of Accounting. He has also co-authored several books and continuing education programs on auditing and accounting.
