In the late 90s the AICPA and state societies cooperated in bringing together CPAs from across the country to develop an unprecedented grassroots vision for the profession for the 21st century and beyond. From this, the CPA Vision Project was established, which identified the profession’s core competencies, core values and core services – as well as defining the following core purpose for the profession: “CPAs: Making sense of a complex and changing world.”
The AICPA has embarked on the next stage of the CPA profession’s effort to anticipate and plan for the future. CPA Horizons 2025 reaches out to CPAs like you, as well as to regulators, state societies, futurists, and young professionals at the start of their careers, for insight on how global forces will affect the profession.
You can take part in planning for the future of the profession and for the future of your firm by conducting a “Future Forum” of your own. This is an opportunity you won’t want to miss! To help with the process, PCPS offers its members a CPA Horizons 2025 Toolkit, which was co-developed by the Business Learning Institute and Sounding Board Ink . Below you will find the toolkit’s contents, including a link to the PCPS CPA Horizons 2025 Future Forum Facilitator’s Guide and everything you’ll need to get started!
