By analyzing current trends and considering potential opportunities and emerging realities, over 5,600 professionals contributed their voices to the project.

CPA Horizons 2025 consisted of an interactive survey, focus groups, and online and in-person discussion groups. Together these various methods provided material for a report made available online to assist CPAs in planning for their future in the profession.
