Alexandra Demosthenes appointed to AICPA Personal Financial Planning Executive Committee
We are proud to announce that IAP partner, Alexandra Demosthenes, CPA/PFS, CFP® was appointed to the AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) Personal Financial Planning executive committee for the fiscal year 2021-2022!
This prestigious committee is made up of 13 CPAs across the country who have shown dedication and a history of service to the CPA profession and within the personal financial planning niche.
The executive committee focuses on the areas of professional standards, ethics, and integrity as well as on the fiduciary responsibilities of CPA financial planners. With effective and meaningful standards of practice, a solid code of ethics, and a strong sense of integrity, CPA financial planners maintain their role as the best professionals to serve their clients' financial planning needs.
The mission of the committee also includes protecting the public interest. In this case, the AICPA has launched several prominent financial literacy programs for the American public, including "360 Degrees of Financial Literacy," which looks at financial matters affecting individuals at numerous stages throughout their lives. These programs help raise the financial literacy of consumers and more closely tie CPAs to the issue as experts to whom consumers can turn for help.
