New AICPA Charman Inaugurated

Yesterday, October 20, 2009, marked the inauguration of a new AICPA chairman, Robert Harris, CPA. Harris has served in many capacities at the AICPA over the last 15 years and is a managing director of Harris, Cotherman, Jones, Price & Associates, CPAs, in Vero Beach, FL. Yesterday marked the start of his one-year term to serve as the chairman.

He focused his inaugural speech on four main areas. They are:
  • IFRS,
  • Sustainability - environmental and social costs of business,
  • Re-regulation, and
  • Involvement of Young CPAs.

This is exciting news for young CPAs as Harris is desiring to appoint at least one CPA professional under the age of 36 per AICPA committee. This is an opportunity for us to get involved. I would love to hear every one's thoughts on this matter.
