Savannah, Ga. (May 21, 2002) -- In an effort to do some succession planning of sorts for the profession, the American Institute of CPAs said it will hold a special meeting next month for its members under age 40.
"The focus is on understanding who this segment of our membership is, how different they are, how well we're meeting their needs, and what their concerns are for the profession and their aspirations," said Janice Maiman, director of communications. During an opening day session Sunday at the institute's Spring  meeting of Council, AICPA leaders discussed results of a survey of its under 40 members that revealed that most are not actively involved in committees or leadership roles within the profession.The institute will sponsor the cost for one member from each state to attend the forum, to be held June 13-14 in Phoenix.

Additional members interested in attending should contact their state societies.

"We're hoping to get the people who are not actively involved," to participate, Maiman said.
