Roger Knecht, Universal’s President says, “IPBC and UAC agree that bookkeeping is more than a job or career but a profession that needs to be recognized as such. With proper training, support and experience, bookkeepers can have a profitable impact in any business.”
“Within the United States there is a need for a bookkeeping community that helps bookkeepers rise to a new level of professionalism and gain respect within the accounting line of work and ICB USA is the organization to do just that” said Roger Knecht, president of UAC.
Joining ICB means becoming a member of the largest community of bookkeepers in the world, which has registered over 150,000 students and members in over 110 countries. Membership means being able to contribute to ICB’s voice as we champion the bookkeeping profession to the accounting firms and software companies, small businesses, and relevant governmental organizations of the USA.
Being a member of ICB also demonstrates a commitment to continued learning and professional development, along with independent, internationally recognized certification. Members will be able to use ICB’s own internationally recognized crest as a stamp of approval. ICB sets a benchmark for the bookkeeping profession to live up to in the various countries in which it has been established.
Joining now as an early member means being able to play a part in shaping ICB’s aims and activities here in the US as we focus on our motto of ‘local focus; national accreditation; global recognition.’ ICB encourages and facilitates networking with other bookkeepers, small businesses and accountants, and keeping up to date with industry knowledge, and provides access to regular CPE opportunities through educational webinars and articles.

What other professions can claim to be as stable or consistent as accounting and bookkeeping? Is the definition of a debit or credit going to change today after being used for more than 500 years?
Since the dawn of time accounting was used in the simplest of forms, and has been referred to as the second oldest profession. From the late 1400’s accounting has been based on the principles of debits, credits and double-entry accounting. Although originally written in Latin, the books of the father of accounting, Fra Luca Pacioli, could be used today to teach bookkeeping.
“There are three things needed by any one who wishes to carry on business carefully. The most important of these is cash or any equivalent, the second thing is to be a good bookkeeper and ready mathematician, the third and last thing is to arrange all the transactions in such a systematic way that one may understand each one of them at a glance.”
Fra Luca Pacioli Summa De Arithmetica 1494
One hundred percent of businesses need accurate accounting, and to ensure that it is done the government steps in and requires that it be completed for taxes. An example of this trend is stated in the United States Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook:
“Demand for full-charge bookkeepers is expected to increase as they are called upon to do much of the work of accountants. Those with several years of accounting or bookkeeper certification will have the best job prospects.”
