Investing in NCACPA membership affords you many opportunities not limited to continued education. In our series on the benefits of membership, we’ve taken a look at and heard from members on our new learning management system, professional development, and advocacy. In today’s post, community outreach and committee opportunities are in the spotlight.
By engaging with your local chapter, you have the opportunity to give back to your community. With 11 different regional chapters, there’s always a way to get involved. Chapters are an integral part of the association, and facilitate networking and educational opportunities as well. Click here to find a chapter near you. Our chapters are also heavily involved in our annual CPA Day of Service. The Day of Service is one day a year where CPAs, along with family and friends, take to their communities and give back in whatever way they choose. For more information on how you can get involved in the CPA Day of Service, visit the webpage.
Committee participation is another way to grow within the association. Being a part of the committee offers members the opportunity to serve as important liaisons with other professionals and the general public. NCACPA committees and the board of directors interact with the AICPA, NC State Board of CPA Examiners, Financial Accounting Standards Board, the Internal Revenue Service, and other bodies that shape state and national standards. Take a look at the different NCACPA committees and find the best fit for your talents.
