North Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants
NCACPA has grown tremendously since its inception in 1919, from a mere 20 founding members to more than 13,000 today. For the past 90 years, providing superior member service has been the primary objective for the association. With strategic guidance from the board of directors, committees, and chapters, NCACPA has been successful in serving North Carolina’s CPAs, regardless of their area of accounting or professional climate. The association’s leaders and staff are dedicated to monitoring changes within the profession and ensuring members have the resources they need.
The association’s 30+ committees, chapters, task forces, and advisory groups regularly interact with the North Carolina State Board of CPA Examiners, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Financial Accounting Standards Board, Internal Revenue Service, and other regulators who shape state and national accounting standards. These vital efforts enable NCACPA to meet its mission of promoting the competence, integrity, civic responsibility, and success of North Carolina CPAs.
One of the association’s greatest services is its comprehensive curriculum of continuing professional education. The association offers more than 500 events annually, including the introduction of webcasts and alternative CPE. With the multitude of offerings across the state, NCACPA aids members in satisfying North Carolina’s mandatory 40-hour CPE requirement and maintaining the highest professional excellence.
In addition to committees and CPE, NCACPA is dedicated to creating new opportunities for CPAs to better serve their profession and communities. Through the NC CPA Foundation Inc., NCACPA provides numerous scholarships and other monetary contributions to aid current and future members of the accounting profession in North Carolina. The association is actively engaged in a variety of service activities, including student recruitment efforts (career fairs, school presentations, etc.) and financial literacy.
