Economic Crisis Resource Center Launched


The AICPA launched the Economic Crisis Resource Center, a Web site for CPAs that offers resources on navigating challenging economic times. The site (www.aicpa.org/economy ) features more than 200 items, including articles on strategic planning, budgeting and forecasting; webcasts on credit and financing impacts; tools for minimizing the effects of a recession; CPE courses on fraud detection and maintaining the public trust; and professional development resources such as job postings (www.cpa2biz.com/careers ).


Resources are available for all segments of the CPA profession. The site is part of the AICPA’s committment to supporting CPAs in their role as stewards of sound money management as the U.S. steers through current and future financial challenges.
