Michigan CPAs Give Thumbs Up to Global Credential
The board of directors of the Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants recently voted to support the AICPA's proposed global business credential, tentatively referred to as "XYZ." The proposed credential is expected to be voted on by the entire AICPA membership later this year.
Last week, Kathy Eddy, chairman of the AICPA, participated in an open forum at AccountingWEB to explain the global credential and answer some questions on the topic.

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.
