Become a Reviewer
Would You Like to Stand Out Among Your Peers?
As a Peer Reviewer, you will not only contribute to the improvement of quality and standards for your industry, but also receive many ancillary benefits including:
- recognition as an expert in your field among your peers.
- identification of best industry practices which can be applied at your firm.
- an opportunity to sharpen your own skills and reinforce your accounting and auditing knowledge.
- the potential for referrals for additional services.
- the development of an additional profit center for your firm.
If you answered “yes” to even one of those questions then NOW is the perfect time to become a peer reviewer!

In addition, your work as a peer reviewer will enable you to provide better service to your own clients by offering a venue to observe and understand the best techniques of other accounting firms.
When you become a peer reviewer, you will gain valuable knowledge, expertise and exposure and quickly earn the respect of your peers. Performing peer reviews also provides members with a way to “give back to the profession.”
