About

Founded in 1920, the Mississippi Society of Certified Public Accountants (MSCPA) is the largest professional organization serving the needs of Mississippi CPAs and aspiring CPAs. With a membership of more than 2,700, the MSCPA represents the majority of Mississippi CPAs in public practice, business & industry, government and education. We support our members through a variety of education, networking, leadership and volunteer initiatives.

The MSCPA offers more than 100 continuing education programs annually to help members increase their value to their clients, companies or organizations and to help CPAs meet their continuing education requirements. Nine chapters and numerous committees and interest groups made up of CPA volunteers develop programs and address issues to help all members be successful professionals.

We also represent the profession’s interests before lawmakers and regulatory bodies. The MSCPA is active in the state legislature, and works closely with outside groups to monitor and respond to issues that affect CPAs and their clients.

Additionally, we’re committed to promoting public confidence in the integrity, objectivity, competence and professionalism of CPAs and the quality of their services.
