Expanding Current Partnership with CIMA Would Amplify Profession’s Voice in Advocacy

November 20, 2015

You may have read that the AICPA is proposing to evolve its joint venture with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) to further enhance the connection between public accounting and management accounting. The AICPA and CIMA began the joint venture in 2011, in part to better serve the nearly half of AICPA members who work in business and industry. The two organizations have had significant success, developing nearly 120 new resources, a competency framework and Global Management Accounting Principles to further professionalize management accounting. The proposal would build on that success and for tax practitioners, one of the primary benefits would be in advocacy.

AICPA members providing tax services are no strangers to diminishing borders when working with clients, and would automatically become part of an international community of more than 600,000 current and next-generation professionals. This would provide an even stronger voice on tax, financial reporting and other critical issues. Learn more from AICPA Board Chairman Tim Christen.
