The American Institute of CPAs plans to participate in a London forum hosted by Prince Charles.

The forum, "Accounting for Sustainability: Decision-Making and Reporting in a Resource-Constrained World," will be held Wednesday at the Royal Family residence at St. James's Palace. It is part of an Accounting for Sustainability program that the Prince of Wales established in 2004 to research and develop systems to help public and private organizations account more accurately for the wider social and environmental costs of their activities.

Representing the AICPA will be professors Brian Ballou and Dan Heitger, co-directors of Miami University's Center for Business Excellence. Microsoft senior director of financial accounting and reporting Bob Laux, a member of the AICPA's board of directors, is also participating in the forum.

All three AICPA members will be in a panel discussion entitled, "Connected reporting - a mechanism for change."
