Advance your career – You’ve landed your job – congratulations! But how do you bring your career to the next level? We offer countless programs and classes designed to help you climb the ladder; our Connecticut Professionals Leadership Academy connects an elite group of new and young professionals across several different professions (including engineers, architects, lawyers, and more) for a rigorous leadership curriculum. You can also expand your leadership skills by serving on a committee or group or maybe even as a member of our Advisory Council or Board of Directors!

Grow your network – Our New and Young Professionals program brings together hundreds of your peers each year, for everything from community services drives and educational offerings to fun programs like ziplining and our flagship holiday party. 

Learn from fellow members - You can join some of our more than two dozen committees or groups to get leadership opportunities and learn from others in a specialization of your choosing. We can also help connect you with a mentor.

Stay on top of what's happening in your profession – It’s hard to stay on top of the changing regulations, professional trends, and breaking news – let us help! We keep you ahead of the curve via Connecticut CPA magazine, email, and social media.

Connect in our online community – Share CPA Exam tips or bounce ideas and concerns off your peers via our CTCPA Connect private online community.

Find job opportunities – Your next job opportunity could be right around the corner – you never know who you’ll meet at a CTCPA program! In addition to job ads and resume postings, joining one of our committees or groups grows your network like you wouldn’t believe.

Get involved in advocating on behalf of your profession – A lot happens at the State Capitol and regulatory agencies. We’re happy to be your eyes on the ground there, representing and protecting you and your interests.  Want to learn how to get involved?  We can help connect you with legislators or regulatory officials, and provide advocacy action alerts when it's time to reach out. 

Get the training you need to take your career to the next level – Whether you like the camaraderie of a live courses or the convenience of on-demand self study programming, we offer education – at a discount – for every niche, every level, and in every medium.
