More than 2,000 NJCPA members are building their career profiles by volunteering as interest group and chapter members, speakers, authors, legislative influencers, food drive organizers, college ambassadors and more. Volunteering with the NJCPA impacts the profession and New Jersey communities.
In addition to supporting a cause you love, you can lead the way when you accept an NJCPA leadership appointment. NJCPA leaders work to further the NJCPA mission, pillars and strategic initiatives. Approximately 100 members serve in leadership roles each year as chairs/leaders, vice chairs/leaders, officers, board members and advisory committee members. Opportunities include the following:
- Lead a technical interest group. Provide feedback on professional issues, build community and provide educational resources to increase the core competencies of the members within a specialty area.
- Serve on a chapter board of directors. Meet your CPA neighbors and help manage the business affairs of your chapter while you grow your influence and standing in your local community.
- Chair or serve on an advisory or governance committee. NJCPA advisory and governance committees complement the effectiveness of the Board of Trustees as they work to carry out a specific initiative. For example, the Investment Committee develops and periodically reviews investment policies, objectives and guidelines for the NJCPA and its related entities.
- Serve on the board of the NJCPA, NJCPA Education Foundation, NJCPA Scholarship Fund or NJ-CPA-PAC. Help steer the NJCPA and its entities towards the future, advancing their effectiveness and sustainability.
