There are so many benefits to being a CTCPA member that sometimes when someone asks me why they should join, I need to pause for a moment. From the strong peer-to-peer interactions I see in meetings and in our online community to the experts we bring in for professional development and committee meetings to the real difference we make while connecting our members to regulators, elected officials, and business referral sources, sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin.
While many of these benefits are evergreen and ongoing, we’re also constantly shifting to bring you just-in-time news and information. Recent free member programs and committee meetings have focused on hot topics in ESG, EIDL, technology, the state’s new cannabis industry, consulting and advisory services, and more.
Bring your staff and colleagues into the mix. Don't forget your new and young professionals!
I hope you will also make sure your peers and younger team members recognize the value of membership. The best way to help them get involved is to bring them along with you to a committee meeting or encourage them to attend an event so they can see the benefits and opportunities first-hand.
We’ve provided ways to have fun and give back through our hugely popular New and Young Professionals Dodgeball Tournament (shout out to our top teams from Deloitte, FML, PWC, and CLA) to time to connect at a Wolf Pack game or give back at our CTCPA Day of Giving.
Something for everyone.
CTCPA really does have something for everyone. Whether you want to be around similarly minded individuals, get answers to tough technical questions in a seminar or workshop, make connections to grow your business, enjoy a fun evening out with your peers, or make connections to grow your business, there’s a place for you in the CTCPA.
