The Institute launched two free, opt-in e-newsletters in January. Financial Planning Digest debuted Jan. 13. On Jan. 20, AICPA members were sent the inaugural issue of Forensic & Valuation Reporter.

The newsletters include:

Links to important stories, culled from hundreds of top news sources.

Summaries of research, analysis, videos and relevant articles.

Both publications are e-mailed on the third Tuesday of the month. To sign up for the newsletters, go to www.aicpa.org/pfp for the Financial Planning Digest and www.aicpa.org/fvs for the Forensic & Valuation Reporter.

The new offerings follow the release on Sept. 15 of CPA Letter Daily, which has attracted more than 103,000 subscribers. Two monthly newsletters were launched on Oct. 2: IFRS Report, now with more than 61,000 readers, and InfoTech Update, with a circulation of more than 52,000.
