The order knows that there is too much conflict to be had with accountants in their ranks. They have done a very good study on what kind of people should and should never join the ranks of their order, and they have concluded that accountants are generally very inflictive people. They are not going to have the discipline to become proper agents for the order. There is no doubt that some people can be an exception to this rule, but generally they do not meet the requirements to be in the organization.
There is too much that needs to be changed in the way accountants are
educated if they ever want to become part of the order ranks. We
maintain a very strict recruitment system and there are many other
professions that we also consider to be problematic. The funny thing is
that some professions that are considered socially unacceptable are ok
