Farewell to CPA Letter as New stage in AICPA news delivery begins.

Its annual awards honored outstanding examples in print, broadcast and electronic media. The CPA disbanded in 2000. Letter included an article about the many timely news sources currently available to AICPA AICPA
See American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). members: CPA Letter Daily, JournalofAccountancy.com and News Update. In light of members' proven use of those valuable resources, The CPA Letter, first published in 1973, has been phased out to boost resources to the newer media solutions. Keeping CPAs informed on critical accounting, business and financial developments is an AICPA top priority.
Over the years, evolving technology has made it possible for the AICPA to provide you with ever more timely news updates and information. We capitalized on this trend last year when we created CPA Letter Daily, the Institute's first daily newsletter (available free on an opt-in basis). Since 2002, the weekly News Update has been supplementing the monthly newsletter, which became a digital publication in Sept. 2008. The JournalofAccountancy.com Web site provides Web-only, real-time news stories and analysis, among other enhancements.
In addition, the AICPA is working diligently on a completely new, robust Web site that will launch shortly after the 2010 tax season. The Web site will feature a News page that will provide a centralized place for the most important information and resources as well as represent the AICPA's voice on critical professional issues. Stay tuned for more information on the Web site in the spring.
The CPA Letter has been a respected news source throughout its history and we look forward to continuing in its esteemed tradition with our new information resources (1) The data and information assets of an organization, department or unit. See data administration.
(2) Another name for the Information Systems (IS) or Information Technology (IT) department. See IT. . Email service See Internet e-mail service. @aicpa.org with any questions or for more information.
