AICPA Member Ballot

The American Institute of CPAs and The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants propose creating a new accounting association that would integrate operations and represent the entire accounting profession, while preserving the membership bodies of both organizations.  Dues paid to the American Institute of CPAs will result in automatic dual membership in the American Institute of CPAs and the new association.  The American Institute of CPAs will continue to promote, protect and grow the CPA.  The proposal’s objectives are providing members with enhanced advocacy, expanded resources and additional education opportunities.

AICPA approval of the proposal requires amendments to the AICPA Bylaws.  Please cast your vote on the proposal and the bylaw amendments to implement the proposal.  Your vote must be submitted no later than 5pm (ET) on June 16, 2016 to be counted.  The Proposal and Bylaw amendments require a two-thirds vote to pass, with at least 500 members voting.
