Headlines CPAJ ImageThe CPA Journal, the NYSSCPA's technical-refereed publication for accounting practitioners and other financial professionals, has been named a finalist in the 2015 Folio Awards, which recognize outstanding magazine journalism.

The Journal earned the nod for its “Then & Now” series, which takes a look at the profession’s past and future from the perspective of senior partners and experts in the field. It was selected as a finalist in the “Association/Non-Profit Series or Article” category.

Contest winners will be announced Oct. 19 during the 
Folio: Eddie and Ozzie Awards Luncheon, in Manhattan.

“Our mission now and in the future is to provide our readers with needed and meaningful insight, critical analysis and actionable guidance,” said Editor-in-Chief Richard Kravitz.   “The Then & Now series, in the spirit of our heritage, looks back at predictions in the profession’s past and then posts experts’ forecasts for our future."

The NYSSCPA launched the journal in 1930 (it was then known as the New York Certified Public Accountant) as a monthly bulletin for CPAs by CPAs.

Today, as the publication celebrates its 85th anniversary, it continues to provide a balanced source of information on the profession’s biggest issues including sustainability, audit failures, diversity, standards settings and education.  

“The Journal has been the voice of the profession for 85 years and that won’t change,” said Joanne S. Barry, the magazine’s publisher and the CEO and executive director of the NYSSCPA.  “In fact, we are amplifying that voice by soliciting articles from a more diverse range of authors, experts and regulators.

“We’ll be asking tough questions that perhaps haven’t been asked – or at least not asked of the right people,” she said.  Some of these questions may be intentionally provocative, not for provocation’s sake but because as a community of CPAs, The CPA Journal has an obligation to honestly reflect and examine a respected professional culture.”
