Why join a professional association as a CPA?

We design MACPA membership to be a “no-brainer.” That’s why, for instance, we offer enough complimentary CPE every year to cover the cost of membership dues.

Our core mission is to help our members CONNECT in strategic ways, PROTECT their professional interests, and ACHIEVE in their careers. So, we tailor our core member benefits around those ideals.



Join a community of professionals who can assist you in your career. MACPA Communities offers pages dedicated to specific practice areas or professional interests that connect you to the latest news and information, upcoming CPE, and a moderated email listserv for that Community.

Networking Events

Throughout the year, MACPA members have the opportunity to connect with each other at a variety of engaging, education, and important events. See our featured events list for a sample of how you can network with peers.


Legislative Advocacy

MACPA members all contribute to the success of our profession and the public interest. By having a consistent presence in Annapolis, and working on special project at the national level, MACPA staff and members are always contributing to positive legislative outcomes.


One of the greatest ways MACPA members participate in protecting our profession is by attending the annual CPA Day event in Annapolis to meet face-to-face with our legislators.

CPA License & Regulatory Improvements

MACPA members also contribute to the work our association does to improve the standards and regulations that shape the nature of our work.


Complimentary CPE & CPE Discounts
