The Association of International Certified Professional Accountants, the combined voice of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), will suspend indefinitely services in Russia and Belarus.
We wholeheartedly stand with the people of Ukraine and join many voices around the world in calling for peace. Our thoughts are with members, students, and staff devastated by the Russian military invasion.
We are suspending indefinitely the sale and delivery of services to Russia and Belarus, including the provision of in-market membership activities for AICPA and CIMA members and the following CIMA examinations: Professional Qualification; Certificate in Performance Management in Russian; Advanced Diploma in Performance Management in Russian; and Certificate in Business Accounting. We acknowledge this will affect many members and students who are caught up in the situation.
To assist, we're sharing information to help members, students, and customers. We are also supporting our staff through these very difficult times. And, as a professional accounting and finance association, we are and will continue to provide tools and resources to help professionals outside of Russia and Belarus manage the widespread impact this crisis will have on all economies, businesses, and societies around the world.
We remain deeply saddened by what is happening in Ukraine — especially the loss of life and livelihoods — and we fully support a swift and peaceful resolution. We will share updates as the situation continues to evolve.
