CITP Champion Program 


    The AICPA CITP Champion program offers specialized CPAs the support, structure, and resources to collaborate with state societies to inform CPAs about the specialization.  There are a number of CITPs currently participating in this program, which was kicked off in 2010. 

    The purpose of the program is to inform the professional accounting community about (1) the vital role of technology in the information management process and (2) raise awareness of appropriate fundamental skill-set and/or certifications required, such as a CITP credential holder.

    AICPA State Society Collaboration Initiative


    To compliment and support the efforts, the AICPA announced the AICPA State Society Collaboration Initiative at the 2010 Interchange Conference. The goal with the on-going collaboration initiative is to connect AICPA members to state society staff and local members and form a community of peers with the similar interest area at the local level. CITP Champions will be referred as experts to local state societies in this initiative.

    To submit your interest or to obtain further details, please email Susan Pierce, Senior Technical Manager.
