AccountingWEB Helps Shape the`XYZ` Credential Debate

One of the most controversial issues to hit the profession recently has been the proposal from the AICPA to develop a Global Business Credential. Early in the debate, AccountingWEB made a decision to be an active player in the discussions, and a forum for both sides to state their cases to the profession.

In doing this, AccountingWEB created the Global Business Credential Resource Center, a comprehensive site which presented an independent, unbiased look at the issues, the players, the debate, and the membership vote.


"...I don't believe I've ever told you how much I appreciate all the work you guys have done on the global credential information. I think you have strove to give out all the information that is available on both sides and to make other sites easily available to viewers."

A Satisfied AccountingWEB Member


AccountingWEB was delighted to work with constituents on all sides of this issue, from the AICPA, who referred their members to AccountingWEB's online debate about the issue on their own Global Credential Web site, to opponents who wanted to present their views on the topic.

In the end, hundreds of people participated in AccountingWEB's online forums about this issue, almost 6,000 accessed the AccountingWEB Global Credential Resource Center, and over 40,000 were exposed numerous times to the issues, the opportunities and the challenges presented by the proposal.

We are honored to have participated in the process, and thank everyone for their faith, confidence and trust in the balanced view that AccountingWEB brought to this paradigm-shifting issue.
