The American Institute of CPAs took the wraps off its redesigned Web site, AICPA.org, with new multimedia and social networking features.

The new site offers many enhancements, including RSS feeds, social media access, live updates, member-only content, self-service membership profile management, an improved search engine, and subscription management for publications and e-mails. 

The new AICPA.org is also designed to showcase more multimedia content, with a new AICPA TV video feature on the home page and more video throughout the site. The site also features an AICPA News page to give visitors a quick view of current accounting issues.

“The new AICPA.org uses leading-edge features and Web 2.0 technology to inform members and the public about the issues affecting the CPA profession,” said AICPA president and CEO Barry Melancon in a statement. “The site allows users to rate content, share articles and easily connect with the AICPA on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.”

Visitors can search by advanced criteria to yield specific results, such as by document type (e.g., article, video, practice guide, etc.) or topic.

In addition to an enhanced search function, the site allows users to browse resources by topic, publication date and type, making it easier to find pages related to a particular professional interest.

Users can also manage their AICPA membership accounts via the site, including dues payments, profiles, user names and passwords, and to set communications preferences for AICPA publications. Members can also access AICPA-related sites, such as CPA2Biz, and pages with a single user name and password they may create in their profile.
