At the last meeting of the AICPA's Governing Council, I had the pleasure of moderating a panel discussion among three esteemed colleagues, all of whom are CGMA designation holders. We spent a portion of our time discussing the importance of dedicating oneself to lifelong learning. "You own the responsibility to keep yourself challenged," said Deirdre O'Connor, FCMA, CGMA. "Look at who succeeds during the tough times and who doesn't. Know your craft, be the expert, and when things change, make sure you get up to speed on what those changes are." How do you keep yourself challenged? Share your experience.
