The AICPA Is Teasing Us With This Press Release About a Press Release

GUYS, we get it, it's the Monday after a holiday and no one wants to work that hard. But really with this?

The American Institute of CPAs will announce the results of its CPA Outlook Index (CPAOI), an indicator of how chief financial officers, controllers and other senior CPA business leaders view the U.S. economy, at 7:00 a.m. EST, Thursday, Dec. 5.

The survey, which will be posted on the AICPA Press Center, incorporates responses from 1,118 senior-level CPAs on future hiring plans, growth in marketing and training and anticipated fluctuations in different categories of business spending. Survey takers also answered questions on the outlook for their companies in the coming year, as well as the U.S. economy as a whole.

Jim Morrison, CPA, CGMA chief financial officer of Teknor Apex and chair of AICPA’s Business & Industry Executive Committee, will be available for press inquiries.

The poll was conducted via email questionnaire from Nov. 6 – Nov. 25. The quarterly CPAOI measures the views of CPAs serving in business and industry who are closest to the finances of their companies and hold well-informed, sophisticated views of the economy. 

Hopefully one of my cats will start howling like a demon through the house for absolutely no reason no later than 5am on Thursday so I won't miss the timely release of this undoubtedly life-changing information.
