What we offer

Members benefit from access to a national association of firms.  Like minded firms are selected to join CPAmerica through a thorough process that considers geography, areas of practice, quality of the firm, and a willingness to share so they can easily pool knowledge and support each other.

Collaboration

We promote a spirit of trust, sharing and openness. Collaboration is the heart and soul of CPAmerica.

Peer-to-peer model

The beauty of our peer-to-peer model is that if our team doesn’t have the answer, someone in our association will – saving time and mistakes.

Professional team

We take great responsibility in our role as a champion and supporter of CPA firms across the United States. What you do is important, so we treat it and our members with the respect they deserve.

Avoid reinventing the wheel

We’ve spent over 45 years successfully helping thousands of member firm professionals adapt to considerable changes and challenges within the industry.

“CPAmerica membership brings access to
a wealth of knowledge across services
and geographies.”
