Advantages of Membership
- Training & Education
To support members’ professional growth, the Society plans and provides nearly 100 courses and conferences each year. These courses and conferences encompass the various needs of CPAs in public practice, industry, education, and government. Society members pay lower, discounted fees to attend Society CPE. Keeping abreast of changes in the profession gives you a competitive edge!
Gain a say in what happens in government through the Society. The Society advocates for a legislative and regulatory environment that supports our member CPAs. Our registered lobbyists keep in constant touch with state legislators, the Nebraska congressional delegation, and regulatory agencies concerning legislation and policies affecting the profession and business in general.
- News & Information
Members receive weekly e-News Updates along with a bi-monthly Nebraska CPA journal that provides the latest news and information about Nebraska Society and professional activities, technical articles, and news about fellow Nebraska CPAs. It’s also an opportunity to advertise your company's products and services and/or employment opportunities at a very low rate and reach more than 2,600 CPAs.
- Networking & Visibility

Despite the ever-increasing use of technology and the challenges resulting from COVID-19, face-to-face interaction is not yet extinct, thanks to your Society. While we’re strong advocates of technological advancement, the Society serves as your primary link to colleagues, allowing you to put names with faces, keeping you in touch with who's doing what, and helping you develop your leadership skills.

One of the Nebraska Society of CPAs’ strengths is the role it plays as a sounding board for thoughts, ideas, and opinions from CPAs across the state. Through the Society, ideas may be channeled to the membership and then heard, analyzed, and acted upon. Through the Society, CPAs explore the issues that affect the profession’s day-to-day and long-range outlook. Membership in the Society signifies a CPA’s commitment to the profession and the belief that much can be accomplished by working together.
