AGN NA Newsletter #40 
I September 2022 


Forty-five years ago this month, four public accounting firms based in the U.S. decided to get together with the plan to form a collaboration and placed an ad in the September 1977 Journal of Accountancy seeking like-minded firms. This action was the first public announcement and beginning of “The Continental Association of CPA Firms” (CACPA) - the organization you now know as AGN. In the coming year, we will be celebrating this achievement with you. Keep an eye out for more details!
