Imagine a vision for the future of an entire Profession? That is what the AICPA did with the CPA Horizons 2025 Project. The Business Learning Institute designed and facilitated future forums with over 1,000 grassroots CPAs that was combined with an e-survey that captured close to 75,000 comments form CPAs about the future. This one-page format was designed to communicate the Vision, Values, Competencies, Career Path and trends and issues from the CPA Horizons 2025 Project.
