11 Reasons to Join UACPA
Share |

Membership may not be mandatory for CPAs, however there are many reasons why you should join the UACPA. Below are 11 of those reasons. 

  • Free (1) hour of required Utah CPE: UACPA members can get the newly required training on the Utah CPA Licensing Act and CPA Licensing Act Rule for no additional charge ($100 value).

  • Advocacy for the profession: During the 2017 legislative season, UACPA members and lobbyists worked with legislators on 19 bills that affect the CPA profession in Utah.

  • Discounts on CPE and insurance: Members save more than $600 when attending all seven annual UACPA conferences. There are more than 3,000 additional webinars and classes available. Members also have access to a discounted group health insurance plan.
  • Chapter Meetings: Members can network with CPAs in their geographic area through attending meetings held by the various chapters throughout the state.
  • Increased awareness and perception: Each year, the UACPA funds a campaign with KSL, which encourages consumers to hire a CPA and search for CPAs using the member search on uacpa.org. In addition, the UACPA promotes the benefits of hiring a CPA to C-suite and business professionals in Utah Business and Utah Enterprise magazines.
  • CPA pipeline growth: The UACPA has dedicated staff and association members who work year-round with students and educators at all the major colleges in Utah to improve the quality and quantity of students joining the CPA profession.
  • The Journal Entry: This is the UACPA’s quarterly magazine. If there is something important that CPAs in Utah should know, it will be in The Journal Entry. Members are also encouraged to submit news and articles for publication.

  • Professional experiences: Meet other CPAs serving in all areas of business, education, government, and firm settings at our corporate finance forums, annual events, leadership conferences, and networking activities.

  • The UACPA knowledge base: Do you have a question you haven’t been able to find an answer to elsewhere? Tell us what you need help with and we’ll do our best to help you. We’ll try to find an answer for you from our staff, board, or one of our 2600+ members. One of our greatest benefits to offer you is the diversity of knowledge and experience our members have.

  • Leadership Academy: New members are eligible to attend the UACPA’s yearly Leadership Academy held in Park City (3-years’ CPA experience minimum). More info: uacpa.org/leadershipacademy

  • Volunteer and serve: Shape the profession by serving on our task forces and committees. Opportunities include, but are not limited to, organizing the yearly golf tournament, planning conferences, answering technical accounting questions for members, and teaching financial literacy at the prison.
