AICPA Launches Online Resource for IT Community
The site is designed to assist CPAs in the AICPA IT community who want to leverage information technology to increase efficiency and boost profits. The mission of the IT community is to:
- provide IT Section Members and Certified Information Technology Professional (CITP) credential holders with the tools to help them enhance their competency and allow them to share best practices;
- serve as a comprehensive resource for information and education about new technologies to the CPAs; raise awareness about the importance of demonstrating expertise of business technology issues and attaining the CITP credential;
- provide information about the community’s activities to other stakeholders.
The information on the IT community Web site  is conveniently organized around a home page and five core areas – Resources, Community, Events, Membership and Products. The IT community provides a venue for CPAs, their clients, employers and customers to resource, monitor, assess, educate, and communicate the impact of technology developments on business solutions. As an added benefit, members of the AICPA IT Membership Section, as well as holders of the CITP specialty credential, can access premium technical and practice management content on the site and obtain discounts on AICPA conferences, publications and practice aids.
