American Institute of Certified Public Accountants

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants is the national, professional organization for Certified Public Accountants (CPAs). Our mission is to provide members with the resources, information, and leadership that enable them to provide valuable services in the highest professional manner to benefit the public as well as their employers and clients. In fulfilling its mission, the AICPA works with state CPA organizations and gives priority to those areas where public reliance on CPA skills is most significant. In 2012 the AICPA celebrated its 125th anniversary of serving the accounting profession. Proud of our history, we also actively respond to today’s reality of a rapidly evolving, technologically driven, and increasingly global world—and help the profession prepare for future changes.
