The program features career-development workshops and sessions with some of the accounting profession’s most prominent influencers.

The 2023 Leadership Academy attendees were recommended by their employers, state CPA societies, and/or volunteer organizations. Candidates submitted resumes and a statement explaining how participating in the Leadership Academy would impact them personally and professionally. Participants were selected from public accounting firms of all sizes, business and industry, government, and consulting firms.

To date, more than 480 CPAs have participated in the AICPA Leadership Academy, many of whom have gone on to take on leadership positions in their firms, businesses and volunteer organizations.
