AccountingWEB Features - Help Us Help You
I am writing this today to thank you for your support as we mark and celebrate together the beginning of AccountingWEB’s third year of providing service to the accounting profession.
What started as an email newswire and a simple web site has evolved into a thriving online community with tools and resources available that help us fulfill our vision of being a vibrant resource to help contribute to your success.
Take a moment now to scan through what's available to you, and follow the various links to learn more. Most of the resources on the site are accessible only to registered members, so if you see the word "Visitor" in the upper left-hand corner of this page instead of your name, you'll have to either login now or register as a new member to see all of what's available to you.
As always, I invite you to contact me directly with any feedback – positive or negative – so that we may continue to improve this service to the profession.
With all the good stuff we've brought to the profession in our first two years, my pledge to you is this: "You ain't seen nothin' yet!"
Mike Platt, CEO

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
