CPA Recognition Dinner

Anyone who's taken the CPA exam and earned their certificate knows how much time and effort go into getting the CPA designation.

The Recognition Dinner is a premier MNCPA event honoring CPAs who recently earned their CPA certificate. Both newly certified CPAs and employers benefit from attending.

The upcoming Fall Recognition Dinner celebrates new CPAs initially certified in Minnesota between June 2018 and September 2018.
