Happy New Year AND New Decade (although we know some of you will debate the “new decade” fact!). We are kicking off our first video blog of 2020 with changes coming to the CPA profession.

Let’s start with a proposal to change the CPA Exam. NASBA and the AICPA have proposed a model similar to engineers to incorporate a core exam and then a specialty while everyone would receive the same CPA license.

We then turn our attention to the Dynamic Audit Solution that the AICPA and its Major Firms Group are creating to disrupt the audit profession.

We’ll close with a look at the CGMA Competency Framework for those in industry on the skills needed to be successful and the changes coming to the future of finance.

The next 10 years will be filled with disruption, innovation – and progress. We wish you a decade filled with learning, development and growth!
