WSCPA values our fellow membership organization for their key contributions and commitment to the accounting and finance professions. From community service projects and hours that aid their communities through initiatives like VITA, partner volunteer days, student peer tutoring, or financial education they demonstrate their commitment to advancing students, building networks and serving the community.
