The AICPA Strategic Plan was developed in collaboration with the AICPA Board of Directors, senior management, the strategic planning committee, volunteer leadership, state societies and staff. It reflects a comprehensive assessment of the social, economic, technological, political and regulatory forces affecting the profession today and driving change for the future. As a blueprint for success, the plan underscores the Institute’s commitment to enhancing resources, information and leadership to help CPAs provide valuable services that benefit the public, employers and clients.

Making sense of a changing and complex world
CPAs are the trusted professionals who enable people and organizations to shape their future. That future is more dynamic than ever as revolutionary changes take place in the marketplace and the global economy. As the leading national professional organization for CPAs, with nearly 370,000 members in 128 countries, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants is dedicated to helping our members navigate this increasingly complex environment—and all the opportunities and challenges it offers.
Success in a changing future begins with a common vision. In the 1990s, the CPA Vision Project
focused on universally shared goals for all CPAs in the 21st century. The project stressed the importance of anticipating and leading change to remain a valued, respected and competitive service provider. While that project focused on building a framework for the profession’s future evolution, the AICPA Strategic Plan provides a beacon for the organization itself to follow as it continues to act as the voice and steward for the CPA profession.
