2020 has been a year like no other. If you are looking for a positive action you can take to make things just a little bit better, introduce your colleagues and friends to the NYSSCPA. We’ve been serving the profession, through thick and thin, for more than 100 years. Membership in the NYSSCPA means opportunity—

For your friends—It’s an opportunity to build a deeper connection with the CPA community and up their game, whether they are CPAs or just work with CPAs.

For you—Every new member expands your network, which means more connections, more business and more support for the profession.

Please help us to grow the Society and build your Chapter membership. You can refer CPAs, non-CPA professionals who work with CPAs, CPA candidates and accounting students.
