What are the Forensic Services Sections?

The Forensic Services Sections are statewide organizations that allow member CPAs to interact on concerns specific to their area of practice within litigation and dispute resolution. The Forensic Services Sections are open to affiliated non-CPAs, including attorneys and judges. Forensic Services Section members have input into what types of CPE is needed and the types of conferences you would like to see developed, as well as express your views on litigation and dispute resolution issues with the AICPA.

The Witness Chair is a newsletter filled with case summaries and citations, commentaries, and reviews of new publications and their impact on CPAs. The Witness Chair also contains technology round-ups to make your work easier and better, tips on generating new business, event calendars and AICPA news.

The sections present an expanded forum to facilitate participation by members interested and practicing in a specific area of the section. The sections aid in the exchange and dissemination of ideas and resources. Sections identify relevant current events and trends for discussion and action, such as proposed responses or comments and the development of CPE. Each section holds three to four meetings per year, alternating between Southern and Northern California and provide CPE.
