The Future of the Accounting Profession and the Value of the CPA

Opinions and Insights from Young Professionals

In order to explore how young CPAs will influence the future of the accounting profession, The CPA Journal invited several individuals in the early stages of their careers to share their ideas and opinions at a lively roundtable discussion held on June 25, 2014, at the NYSSCPA's offices. The topics covered included education, work-life balance, the perception of accountants, the impact of technology, mentoring and networking, and the value of the CPA designation. The panelists included Rumbi Bwerinofa-Petrozzello, a controller at TGM Associates; Michael Durant, an aspiring CPA pursuing his master's degree in taxation at Baruch College; Jordan Frey, a senior accountant in EisnerAmper LLP's private business services group; and Somya Munjal, founder of CPA for the People and Youthful Savings. CPA Journal Editor-in-Chief Maria L. Murphy moderated the roundtable. The following is an edited account of the discussion. Watch a behind-the-scenes video at http://www.cpaj.com.
