Our purpose is to help our members succeed professionally while being mindful of serving the public. We have four primary initiatives:

  • Provide education
  • Encourage leadership
  • Offer member resources
  • Serve the public

The MNCPA operates through volunteer committees and task forces, statewide chapters and a board of directors elected by the membership. Our professional staff manages support services and professional development.

MNCPA membership is open to anyone holding a CPA certificate (active or inactive) from any state. Associate membership is available to non-CPA owners of a firm, billable professionals, firm administrators, corporate finance professionals or non-CPAs in a full-time accounting educator role.

About CPAs

CPAs are business and financial strategists who help chart the paths of individuals and businesses. Members are credentialed by the state after passing a rigorous exam and meeting specific work and education experience requirements.

CPAs are required to follow a strict code of ethics and perform within the high standards of the profession. Active CPAs meet continuing education requirements every three years to keep up with new rules and regulations in the financial, accounting and business world.
