At NYSSCPA's 116th Annual Election Meeting and Dinner on May 16, Society members voted overwhelming to approve changes to the Society bylaws and to adopt the AICPA Code of Conduct to replace its own Code of Professional Conduct.
In a joint announcement, the AICPA and NASBA said they have extended their agreement with Prometric to deliver the Uniform CPA Examination through 2019, using the company’s global computer-based testing network. Prometric delivered the first computerized CPA Exam in 2004, noted the release, and has delivered more than 1.8 million exams to date.
Barry Melancon, president of the AICPA, has announced the death of his predecessor, Phil Chenok, who served as president from 1980 to 1995. Although he lived in Tucson, he died at Columbia University Medical Center’s New York-Presbyterian Hospital, on Feb. 12. He is survived by his wife, Linda Stack, his sons Dan and Dave Chenok, and five granddaughters.
An email notice purportedly coming from the AICPA, threatening CPAs with imminent loss of license, has been finding its way into inboxes. At least one version of this notice states that the recipient has possibly been involved in an incorrect and fraudulent tax return and unless the recipient responds quickly, license cancellation will follow. However, the AICPA has not sent this.
Each year, the American Institute of CPAs grants the Elijah Watt Sells Award to those CPA candidates who obtained a cumulative average score above 95.50 across all four sections of the Uniform CPA Examination, completed testing during the previous calendar year and passed all four sections of the examination on their first attempt.
Technology may be an enormous boon to CPAs, but it also comes with a lot of worries. According to a recent survey conducted by the AICPA, "securing the IT environment" is the top technology priority.
CPAs--and even members of the general public--have been receiving emails claiming to be from the AICPA that say that the Institute has received complaints about the recipient and as a result their licenses are in immediate danger of being revoked.
Advances in computer testing for the CPA exam have brought about changes in the timing of when the scores are released, according to the AICPA. Starting fourth quarter, 2011, those whose test results are received by the AICPA within the first 20 days of the testing window are expected to get their results 10 business days after the end of day 20 in the testing window, with scores released Nov. 3.
