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.
