Should CPA working in private industry maintain Active status?
(Assistant Controller) | Aug 31, 2013
I'm a CPA, former auditor, now working in the private sector as a Controller. How important is it for me to keep my CPA status as "active"? I've been "inactive" now for about two years, but part of me would like to maintain that active status even though I don't have a real need for it. Plus I'd have to convince my company to pay for the training units I'll need to reactivate my status. That's a lot of time and money to spend for something I wouldn't necessarily need.
