National Group Formulating Accounting Talent Strategies Fields Two Surveys to Help Shape Its Recommendations

National Pipeline Advisory Group Looks to Collect Sentiment on Strategies in Support of its Data-Driven Work

NEW YORK , March 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Pipeline Advisory Group (NPAG), an independent panel convened by the American Institute of CPAs' governing Council to look into ways to boost the pipeline of future accountants and CPAs, is currently fielding two surveys that will help drive its recommendations this spring. One survey is focused on college students, the other on the profession as a whole.

NPAG, a 22-member group that represents a broad spectrum of the accounting profession, has reviewed a substantial body of third-party research related to pipeline issues since its initial meeting last summer, and has conducted inquiries, forums and focus groups to pinpoint the most significant barriers and gain input into potential solutions to the profession's pipeline challenges. 

The group has launched two new surveys designed to fill in gaps and solicit feedback on some of the group's potential options. NPAG is due to deliver its draft national strategy on the pipeline to the AICPA's governing Council in May, with a full report to come in July.

"We've said from the beginning we'd be data driven, that we're looking to get buy-in from the profession and its many stakeholders, and that we wanted to make NPAG's process as transparent as possible," said Lexy Kessler, mid-Atlantic regional leader for the accounting firm Aprio and NPAG's chair. "These surveys are an important tool that will help inform our recommendations, backed by the research analysis, outreach and deliberation that we've already done."

Both surveys can be accessed at accountingpipeline.org/participate. While similar, they are aimed at different audiences:

Answers and personal information will remain anonymous.
