The benefits of belonging to a professional association are plentiful. As a CPA, we understand that you also require more targeted networking opportunities. These FICPA Communities provide support and connections on a local level, with peers who share a common professional focus and with other CPAs who are just getting started in their careers.
Over 30 committees provide opportunities to invest in the association including CPE conference planning, publications, finance advisement and state legislative policy.
Local and regional chapters provide an excellent opportunity for you to develop leadership skills by taking an active role in both the Institute and the profession. Chapter members are kept abreast of chapter activities and programs through the FICPA website, chapter-specific newsletters and e-mails.
FICPA Sections provide online communities to share ideas, ask questions, seek guidance and access news and education specific to your professional focus.
E-mail and Web based discussion groups designed for interactive communication with your peers. A quick and user–friendly method to exchange ideas and address job related questions, the FICPA Listservs offers a forum for like–minded professionals to share their knowledge and experience.
If you're a Florida CPA under the age of 35, you might be interested in joining the Young CPAs (YCPA) for support, tips and best practices on getting started in your accounting career.
