AICPA and NAFOA Develop Strategic Partnership

The AICPA and the Native American Financial Officers Association (NAFOA) have established a Strategic Partnership Alliance to enhance both organizations’ efforts to inform and encourage ethnic diversity within the accounting profession.


NAFOA is a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of financial and business management of tribal governments, their entities and their businesses. Based in Phoenix, NAFOA advocates for tribes on issues affecting sovereignty and supports the development of Native American financial professionals.


As part of this partnership, the Institute will also reach out to state CPA societies with Native American populations to assist with collaboration at the grass-roots level to help ensure Native Americans are included in diversity programs.
