Professional development, legislative outreach, educational and volunteer services are some of the hallmarks of an organization that is one of the oldest state societies in the nation.
The New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJSCPA) is a non-profit, professional business organization, comprised of more than 14,500 Certified Public Accountants. Founded in 1898, the NJSCPA is one of the largest and perhaps, one of the oldest state CPA societies in the nation.
The NJSCPA was founded in Newark by four accountants who worked in public practice to secure a solid position for their profession and to increase public awareness about the value provided by CPAs. Today, the increasingly diverse membership consists of CPAs who work in business and industry, in government, education, and at accounting firms ranging in size from sole practitioners to large international organizations.
A Broad Range of Opportunities
From its administrative headquarters in Roseland, the NJSCPA provides members with a broad range of opportunities for their volunteer involvement and professional development. There are 11 chapters in New Jersey and 39 statewide committees focusing on areas ranging from accounting, taxes and legislation to sports and entertainment, human resources and community affairs.
A 31-member Board of Officers and Trustees, that is elected each year by the membership, oversees and manages the operations of the NJSCPA while an executive director and professional staff conduct daily activities.
