    A few moments of your time. The Academics Area wants to hear from you.

    The American Institute of CPAs continues to look for ways to address the needs of accounting educators, just like you. We are striving to make it easier for you to access resources and updates within the accounting profession. That’s why we recently launched the Academics Area, a division that will deliver accounting profession developments and related resources to accounting faculty.
    As we establish this area, we’ve got some exciting ideas to deliver information exclusively tailored to you, including an accounting faculty newsletter. If you’re interested in a news medium such as this, please complete the survey. A few minutes of your time will help us create a resource that is highly valuable to you. And if you complete the survey by 11:59pm on April 11, 2014, you’ll be entered for a chance to win an iPad Air.* Please note that an email address must be provided on the survey so that the winner can be notified.

    Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts with us as we embark on a new venture to collaborate with you and keep you informed.
