You Should Totally Brag About Being a CGMA on LinkedIn

In a shameless attempt to further the CGMA brand and perhaps lend it much-needed credibility, the AICPA is encouraging CGMA holders to brag about their "accomplishment" on LinkedIn. By accomplishment, we mean ability to mail in a check and sign some paperwork.

Here's a snapshot of the suggestion as emailed out to CGMA holders yesterday:

As we all know, a three-hour exam is now required if you want to "earn" those four little letters. That's only been the case since the beginning of the year, so we can safely assume most of the 10,000 CGMAs out there "earned" their letters the old-fashioned way — a check and two or three years of experience.

So, yeah, you should totally brag about that.
