You'll be seeing a few changes on Accounting Tomorrow in the coming months. We'll still have our own URL, www.accountingtomorrow.com, but we'll be amping up our blog to engage and promote reader discussion. We'll also be unveiling a new logo that will mesh better with Accounting Today's brand.

One graduate, Wahidullah Naseri, spent his first 16 years as an Afghan refugee in Peshawar before repatriating to Afghanistan in 2002.

In other news, we've been into promoting mix'n'mingle networking events for young CPAs. If you're a state society and you've got one coming up, let us know and we'll post it. Even better, send us a photo or a video from your event and we'll post that, too.
