AWSCPA to Join AICPA

The American Woman’s Society of CPAs (AWSCPA), a professional organization representing women CPAs, has agreed to support an memorandum of understanding with the AICPA. The following is an excerpted letter from the AWSCPA:

The AWSCPA national board is pleased to announce that we have received and unanimously accepted a memorandum of understanding with the AICPA that will further the goal of supporting women in the profession.

For the first time since our inception, AWSCPA has the opportunity to showcase our strengths on a larger platform. The AICPA can provide the women of our organization the resources, knowledge and skills. This provides an opportunity for our members to connect with a vast community of professional women in all realms of the accounting world as mentors, role models and friends.

In exchange for assignment of the AWSCPA intellectual property (logo, name, etc.) AICPA will:

  • Create a new task force for AWSCPA under women’s initiatives executive committee
  • Provide discounted introductory AICPA membership dues for AWSCPA members who are not currently AICPA members
  • Develop communities and programming for women members of the AICPA, including former AWSCPA members, as the women’s initiatives executive committee deems appropriate
