Richard J. Caturano,
vice-chairman of the Board of Directors for the AICPA,
wrote an op-ed piece in Boston Business Journal titled ‘An Open Invitation to Help Others Achieve the American Dream
.’ Caturano writes about the experience of his family in Boston during the ‘40s and ‘50s and how the hard work of his parents and grandparents created opportunities for him in the United States. The opportunities allowed him to pursue higher education, earn his CPA license, and eventually become the a highly regarded leader in the profession. Caturano’s hope is that others will follow his lead and use the accounting profession as a stepping stone to help them achieve the American dream.
