Event details 

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.

Due to COVID-19, we will be combining the Spring and Fall Recognition Dinners. The upcoming 2020 Recognition Dinner celebrates new CPAs initially certified in Minnesota between October 2019 and September 2020.

Show support and recognize the accomplishments of your employees without the time and resources spent planning an event worthy of earning the CPA. You also have a chance to reconnect with your peers, college alumni and professors.

Firms and companies that choose to sponsor a table will be recognized in the evening's program, on the MNCPA website and in the Footnote.

New CPAs 

Soak in the moment and celebrate your accomplishment with loved ones and colleagues during the evening from the cocktail hour with appetizers along with a stellar dinner and a motivational and helpful message from the evening's keynote speaker.

Newly certified CPAs receive a bottle of champagne, compliments of the MNCPA Young Professionals Group.

"Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek."
