As the chief executives of four state CPA societies from different regions of the country, we have seen firsthand the positive impact that has been made on the issue of improving mobility for qualified CPAs to practice across state lines without notification or additional fees.We also know that the significant progress on improving mobility over the past two years did not happen by chance. Rather, it has been due to the hard work and energy of countless CPA volunteer leaders and staff within state CPA societies, state boards of accountancy, the American Institute of CPAs and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy. The success on this important issue for the profession has clearly been a team effort and is a dramatic example of the progress that can be made when the profession harnesses its collective efforts and resources to focus on achieving a common goal.

Less than two years ago, the state CPA society executives convened a meeting in Chicago to focus on the issue of improving mobility for our members. Our interest in the issue was driven by events that had transpired over the preceding years in a number of states that demonstrated the need to minimize, if not eliminate, barriers to the ability of CPAs to easily practice across state lines.
