Council Approves Non-CPA Affiliation with AICPA Member Sections

Article excerpt

At its fall meeting, the AICPA council voted to allow non-CPAs employed by CPA firms to affiliate with the Institute's voluntary membership sections as "section associates." While associates will not have voting privileges, they will qualify for the technical information and service benefits offered by the tax division, the personal financial planning division, the management advisory services division and the information technology division. Associates will receive the Journal of Accountancy and the CPA Letter.

To participate, section associates will have to meet eligibility requirements. An individual must

* Be from a firm enrolled in an AICPA practice monitoring program.

* Be sponsored by an AICPA member who is an owner of such a firm.

* Have a bachelor's degree from a college or university accredited by one of the six regional accrediting agencies.

* Meet continuing professional education requirements for AICPA members in public practice.

* Abide by the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct.

Non-CPAs' affiliation with the membership sections is contingent on specific authorization by each division's executive committee.
