The AICPA's 125-year history, boiled down to 23 words: Helping you enter the CPA profession and stay there, by connecting you to the people and information you need to succeed. (For those of you who noticed that was only 22 words, nice going.)

How does the AICPA do it? Pretty much every way you could imagine. It advocates on your behalf to regulators, legislators and the general public, letting them know how essential CPAs are to society. It provides continuing education opportunities to make smart accounting professionals even smarter. It launches websites like this one to provide all the tips, insight and data you could ever want to know.

The AICPA also develops and grades the Uniform CPA Examination, so if you’ve taken it – or studied for it – you’ve seen the organization's work. It’s all part of the AICPA's plan to build accountancy’s reputation as a profession of individuals who are educated, ethical, and focused on serving the common good.

And as of now, you’re invited to help.
