CEO MESSAGE

Welcome to the Digital CPA community

When I look at most successful CPA firms, what do I see? An eye to the Future, Action, Momentum. Their leaders have chosen a smart, strategic direction and they've moving quickly to achieve their goals. They're outpacing the field.

I get the same feeling from the Digital CPA community. When I look out from the podium at our signature conference, I see firms that are laying the groundwork for the future of the profession. What's remarkable is the shared sense of purpose in this community, even among business rivals. We're building something, together. It's a different way of looking at technology and its possibilities. Technology is a bridge builder to the future.

Thomas Edison once said, "There's a way to do it better – find it." To me, that's what Digital CPA and CPA.com are all about.

Erik Asgeirsson
President and CEO, CPA.com

 

To be a Digital CPA requires competencies in 3 key areas: technical knowledge, progressive business skills and strong leadership. Though this can be said for running any accounting practice the approach and strategies are distinctly different. A Digital CPA is not just using technology, but employing it to transform their business environment to be relevant into the future for clients and staff. This is why CPA.com puts on the conference, webcasts, whitepapers and more to bring this community of progressive practitioners together to aid each other in propelling the profession into the future.
