The American Institute of CPAs has rolled out a new associate membership category for all college and university accounting faculty who are not holding or pursuing the CPA designation.The category will be most similar to the institute’s already existing non-CPA section associates -- instead of working for an accounting firm, applicants have to be teaching accounting at a college or university. Dues are set at $185 a year

AICPA president and chief executive Barry C. Melancon said the new addition was to help faculty members to stay informed about what’s happening in the profession.

Non-CPA faculty members are entitled to most of the benefits of general membership – including a one-year subscription to AICPA’s Core Library, access to technical information and professional ethics hotlines and access to AICPA insurance and retirement programs. However, they will not be voting members of the AICPA. 
Applications to become a Non-CPA Faculty Associate member are available online at Information and descriptions of the institute’s other membership categories is available at
