The AICPA is in the midst of a major project in which it seeks to develop "a comprehensive, shared, and integrated vision of the future of the CPA profession that is grounded in facts and supported by a broad 'grassroots' base of members." In recognition of the importance of the project, the AICPA has engaged Jeannie Patton, executive director of the Utah Association of CPAs, to be the project director. Direction for the project is coming from the Council of the AICPA and not a special committee.

An executive summary for the program lists the following expected outcomes:

* A platform to substantiate current or future activities and programs necessary to realize the vision;

* The creation of a magnet to bring members together and forward upon the same road to the future; and

* Behavioral changes within the profession so that the profession may realize the shared vision resulting from this vision project.

The project calls for input from members and state societies and will use outside consultants, facilitators, and market research professionals. An external advisory council will be established made up of leaders of business, government, and education to provide a broad perspective of the profession and its future. *

The CPA Journal is broadly recognized as an outstanding, technical-refereed publication aimed at public practitioners, management, educators, and other accounting professionals. It is edited by CPAs for CPAs. Our goal is to provide CPAs and other accounting professionals with the information and news to enable them to be successful accountants, managers, and executives in today's practice environments.
