Stahlin elected AICPA chair

Paul Stahlin has been elected chair of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

Stahlin has more than 25 years of experience in banking and accounting. He has been actively involved with the AICPA since 2001 and has chaired the institute’s audit committee in 2007 and 2008.

Stahlin said the AICPA has advocated for a single set of global standards for many years and the institute will continue to work closely with the Securities and Exchange Commission on IFRS adoption.

“We once considered international standards a convenience, today they are a necessity,” he said.

Stahlin said the AICPA plans to launch an IFRS certificate programme that will teach knowledge and competency in applying IFRS. In January, questions about IFRS will be included on the CPA exam.
