100% Firms Membership Benefits

Every accounting firm in California is a valuable partner of CalCPA. We realize that accounting firms have their own unique needs—from the education necessary to keep staff current on the latest rules and regulations to staffing to business operations. And we’ve designed our Firm Membership program to meet those needs.

If your firm has 15 or more CalCPA members (members must include all full-time CPAs and CPA candidates), then you can enroll and participate in our Firm Membership program, which will play a pivotal role in our ongoing effort to increase the value and promote the integrity of the CPA profession. There is strength in numbers and as our membership grows, so does our ability to represent you to legislators, educators and the public.

You also can take your firm involvement one step further: When all of your firm’s CPAs and CPA candidates are CalCPA members, you become a 100% Firm and gain access to a network of talent, education and savings—as well as show your commitment to the profession and CPA community.

Having CalCPA at your side, you can be certain that your concerns are addressed and action is taken. We keep you informed of developments and ensure regulations are clear, reasonable and uphold the public interest. From new hires to senior staff and managing partners, we’re committed to contributing to your success.

Why become a 100% Firm?

ACCESS: You and your staff will have early access to networking events, such as ABC (Attorneys, Bankers and CPAs) nights. When employees feel supported in their professional development and are part of a community, they are more likely to stay and grow with your firm.

ADVOCACY: Through our long-term relationships with key policy makers, your voice will be heard when issues affecting the CPA profession and business community are debated in the California Legislature or through the regulatory process.

BILLING: Don’t get lost in paperwork—we’ll provide you with a single membership renewals invoice for all your employees.

CONVENIENCE: Access our dedicated Firm Engagement Team to help you with CalCPA and CalCPA Education Foundation matters.

EXPOSURE: Be included in our online Firm Guide, available to members looking for job prospects.

FUTURE: Experts are on hand to help clarify for your candidates the potentially confusing path to CPA licensure. And our focused YEP Connection e-newsletter for young and emerging professionals—candidates, students and recently licensed CPAs—delivers the information the next generation needs to launch and advance a CPA career.
