MACPA has a place in accounting history as one of the first to create the CPA License at the beginning of the Second Industrial Revolution in 1900. We are now early into the Fourth Industrial Revolution driven by exponential technologies that has accelerated the size, speed and scope of change, causing waves of disruption across industries. The challenge and opportunity is for CPAs to accelerate their rate of adaptation by using the skill of anticipation to see through the fog of uncertainty and implement new ways to add value.
This series will continue to explore the latest hard trends in regulations and standards, demographics, and technology impacting today’s CPAs and predict those trends we know are and will impact our Profession, clients and organizations (business, government and not-for-profits) to help you anticipate, adapt and thrive in Industry 4.0. We will be doing in-depth updates on the talent shortage and pipeline of new CPAs, cover the latest developments in the State Board and the Maryland Legislature, the recent AICPA PCPS Firm trends. We will also feature the latest research on emerging trends from Daniel Burrus, global futurist.
