I visit the Web site of the AICPA, www.aicpa.org, on a regular basis, using it as a springboard to various sections on the site. I was used to a page coming up with numerous hyperlinks that allowed me instant access to what I was looking for. Imagine my surprise last week when I went to aicpa.org and saw a completely different look to the home page.On initial glance, it now has a much cleaner, uncluttered, and attractive look. There is much less text and fewer hyperlinks. I was looking for the Audit and Attest Standards section, which used to have a hyperlink on the home page that allowed one-click access. I saw on the top of the home page the terms “Standards and Performance,” but, alas, it turned out just to be a phase describing one the areas within the AICPA’s focus.

I didn’t give up. I found what I wanted sometime later, now three hyperlinks in. The trick is finding the right first hyperlink. I was tempted not to tell you. It is the not-so-obvious “Professional Resources.”
