    AICPA 125th Anniversary Poster Available Free to Members
     

    From the abacus to adding machines to PCs in your pocket, the tools of the accounting profession have evolved over the past 125 years. More than 400 members offered to provide their machines—and other bits of memorabilia used by CPAs in their day-to-day work and education—to help us illustrate the history of the profession. The memorabilia poster showcases many of the objects from this unique project. Available at no charge, order a printed poster (limited quantity available) or download it from the CPA Marketing Toolkit.

    Thank you for sharing in our 125th celebration.  In honor of our anniversary, starting next week each regular issue of AICPA News Update will feature a quote we received from a member. See some of these quotes on AICPA Insights
