About CPAFMA

Community Connections

CPA Firm Management Association is the one representative voice of the profession. The Association leads CPA firm management by empowering all CPA firms to thrive while expanding knowledge, sharing experiences, achieving through collaboration, influencing leadership and envisioning possibilities.

CPA Firm Management Association was founded on January 1, 1984, to enable accounting firm managers to communicate with one another and provide each other with the benefits of everyone's experiences in what was a new and emerging profession. Through a combination of local meetings and seminars, national conferences, publications and surveys, CPAFMA, a firm-based membership association, has continued to offer benefits to members at minimal cost.

The Association is the one representative voice of the profession. Many of our members put forth a great deal of effort toward educating the public accounting profession about the benefits of hiring professional firm managers to run the operations of their respective firms. They have also largely shaped the profession, determined the direction for manager career pathing, and have been on the cutting edge of developments in our profession.

Leading the Way

Many of our firm members’ professional teams hold seats on state society and AICPA committees and leadership teams. A number of members have been called upon to speak before various groups of partners and organizations to teach them how beneficial the role of the Firm Manager or COO (or equivalent title) can be to CPA firms of all sizes. In fact, several members have become principals or partners within their respective firms, crediting much of their professional success to the Association. The organization is featured in its own section in the AICPA's Management of An Accounting Practice Handbook and has an active alliance with the AICPA’s PCPS.
