Future CPAs Membership
We know you're not earning the big bucks (yet), so we offer free membership to accounting students and those working toward their CPA. See if you qualify for membership and check out all the benefits.
Each year we award scholarships to LCPA members who are accounting majors in Louisiana. Scholarships are given in the spring to offset funding for the current or preceding semester at a Louisiana university. But you have to qualify to apply — find out if you do.
It's never too early to get your name out in the accounting world. We offer networking events specific to our student and candidate members. Get involved in your community by volunteering with LCPA, and meet other members while promoting important social initiatives. See who you can talk to and what events are coming up.
LCPA knows that navigating the path to become a CPA isn't easy. From your first accounting class, to your first job as an accountant - we are here to guide you. Check out the different resources available for our Future CPAs that will help get your career started.
