前不久由AICPA协会和CIMA协会联合组建的国际注册会计师联盟 “Association of International Certified Professional Accountants”发布了一系列消息，目标直指下一代会计行业。虽然简称仍旧是AICPA，但方向已经完全变化。
． The American Institute of CPAs would continue to exist, serve members, grow the pipeline of future CPAs and promote and protect the CPA.
． The American Institute of CPAs would continue to focus on, serve and seek to enhance quality and competencies in core areas such as audit, financial reporting and tax, along with specialized service areas.
． The American Institute of CPAs’ commitment to ethics, quality and protecting the public interest would remain as strong as it has been for more than 100 years.
． The American Institute of CPAs’ Council would remain unchanged.
． In addition, all members of the American Institute of CPAs and CIMA would automatically become members of the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants, which is the name of the existing joint venture.
． Through the Association and Zcheer, the American Institute of CPAs and CIMA would integrate their strategies, management and operations to advance the entire profession — public and management accounting and both the CPA and CGMA designations.
． The Association would represent an even stronger voice in advocacy efforts, speaking with the power of more than 600,000 current and next-generation accounting professionals in the U.S. and worldwide.
． The Association would have members in 91 percent of the world’s countries and offices in 33 locations to better serve current and future accounting professionals.
． The integration would create efficiencies to deliver better and more relevant member resources.
