CPAs PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE

To give our readers more food for thought about how the accounting profession is changing, The CPA Journal convened a panel of six movers and shakers from all corners of practice and asked them to make short- and long-term forecasts for themselves, their businesses, and the profession. The result is this monthís installment in the Millennium Series.

The panelists share an optimism about the direction of the accounting profession in the new millennium, and their ideas reflect the original and diverse thinking that is shaping the professionís response to the challenges of todayís business environment. Unsurprisingly, each panelistís perspective was shaped by individual circumstance and standing in their respective careers. Uncertainty about the future of the profession is by no means an impediment to having a clear sense of oneís own direction and plans. As a validation of one recurring theme of the discussion, one of the panelists has made a significant career change in the short time since the panel met.
