    Did we mention the fabulous New and Young Professionals' programming we put together? How do bowling, kickball, charity walks, and a holiday cocktail party sound to you?


How do you feel about two-for-one deals?

In addition to becoming a student member of the Connecticut Society of CPAs, you will automatically receive the added benefit of a free AICPA student affiliate membership. The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) is the world’s largest member association representing the accounting profession, with more than 412,000 members in 144 countries, and a history of serving the public interest since 1887. Plus, they’re the ones who develop and grade the CPA Exam.

Joint CTCPA/AICPA student membership gives you the combined benefits of both organizations dedicated to serving you and the CPA profession
