Professional Issues


The AICPA, under the leadership of immediate past Chair Leslie Murphy, launched the Young CPA Network, to address the needs of professionals early in their careers. The network offers a monthly electronic newsletter, The Edge, and a dedicated Web site ( www.aicpa.org/YoungCPANetwork ) that provide tools and resources to help develop skills and get advice on networking, work-life balance and satisfying CPE requirements. An online Q&A service enables young professionals to anonymously ask career-related questions of more experienced CPAs.
