Free Opt-In E-Newsletters Launched


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.

Wireless functionality for mobile readers.

Information from the specialized community.


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.
