What’s the new website all about?

In a word, you. Based on what AICPA members told us, we’ve built a new personalized experience from the ground up.

Your preferences are front and center, so you’re in control of the information you see – content and CPE offerings relevant to your career stage, professional goals and day-to-day decisions.

And you can change the settings at any time, as you expand interests and build new skill sets.

Tell me about the personalized content. How does it work?

When you first logged into the new website, you selected areas of professional interest. We refer to them as “topics” and “subtopics.”

We recommend following at least three topics. That way, you’ll see content and learning that match your selections on your homepage timeline. Additional filters and sorting are available, so you can be even more specific about the content you see.

In the coming months, we’ll add more topics/subtopics and offer up more content.

How do I edit my preferences?

Option 1:
Visit the Preferences page in your profile to follow any topics.

Option 2:
When you’re on a content page, follow and unfollow topics under “Mentioned in this article.”

Insider’s tip >> Don’t forget to select “Save changes” after you’ve edited your preferences.

I’m looking for something that’s not in my timeline.

On your laptop/desktop: Enter your search terms in the search bar at the top of your homepage.

On your phone: Tap the magnifying glass icon in the upper right-hand corner, and enter your search terms.

We’re adding content and CPE products to the new site every day. Right now, you’ll see some of our most popular articles, podcasts and media from AICPA blogs, Journal of Accountancy, The Tax Adviser and the Association.

Where can I check or update my AICPA membership details?

You can still view and update your profile on the previous AICPA.org – including your contact information, employer, skills and volunteering interests.
