Join/Renew

Truth. Strength. Fortitude.

Three words we don't take lightly. If this year has taught us anything, it's that there's never been a greater need to share accurate, timely information. We've learned that even apart, there is strength in numbers. We know that, together, we will get through this crisis like ones we've faced before.

As always, LCPA remains committed to being a trusted source of information and your go-to resource for staying connected to each other and to valuable member benefits. Whether you are accessing disaster management resources, or the number of quality educational programs available, we’re here to help you through challenging times, every time.

We recognize the hard work you've done to help businesses and taxpayers weather this storm, and how you're helping them plan for the long road ahead. We are proud to represent such essential professionals, and we'll be at your side every step of the way.

We ask that you renew your LCPA membership today and allow us to continue providing vital resources that make you and the profession stronger.

On behalf of the entire LCPA team,

Ron Gitz, CPA, CGMA
LCPA Executive Director & CEO
