Since the AICPA began, member volunteers have contributed to the Institute and the profession. Volunteer service gives members the opportunity to influence and guide the profession's direction as well as network with peers. Many volunteers participate on the AICPA’s approximate 180 volunteer groups. Members also support the profession's Financial Literacy efforts that encourage CPAs to educate the public on a range of financial topics. Another volunteer effort is the Audit Committee Matching System that connects AICPA members with opportunities to serve on boards of directors, and, as a public service, provides companies with a list of qualified CPA candidates to serve on their boards of directors and the audit committees of those boards.
Candidates can review and apply to volunteer groups via the Volunteer Central website. Additionally, Volunteer Central provides information on the nearly 200 AICPA volunteer groups, approximately 2,500 volunteers and the following resources:
