Group B Expands Membership

BY JOURNAL

The Practice Group B advisory committee, a group for large public accounting firms (not including the five largest), recently invited several qualified firms to join its membership.

The group, which had been limited to 40 firms, made the change because of the growing number of merged practices that now meet Group Bs size requirement.

To be invited to join, firms must have at least 50 AICPA members for three consecutive quarters and they must attend two out of three consecutive meetings. Practice Group B meets twice a year.

The benefits of membership in the group include

  • A forum in which firms can learn from one another.
  • The opportunity to network and build relationships.
  • Regular contact with Institute leaders.
  • A collective voice on professional issues.
