Called the 'Information Technology Alliance Section,' the ITA is counting on the support from AICPA to help serve its community of CPAs and non-CPAs, and reciprocally for the AICPA's membership interested in information technology consulting.
The AICPA's governing body approved the integration on May 21st at its Spring Council meeting in Puerto Rico.
As a first effort, the ITA will lead the development of the AICPA's Technology Advisors Program (TAP) and support the educational and training requirements of the new Certified Information Technology Professional (CITP) credential.
The section will also maintain a dedicated website and sponsor an annual conference. Section members will receive newsletters, technical alerts and other publications, and discounts on products and services.
