Founded in 1887, the AICPA helps you enter the CPA profession and stay there, by connecting you to the people and information you need to succeed.
How does the AICPA do it? By advocating 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 www.ThisWayToCPA.com to provide tips, insight and data to help you reach your CPA destination.
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.
