The New Jersey Association of Public Accountants was formed to elevate and maintain a high standard of proficiency and integrity; to promote and protect the interests of the consuming public; to cultivate a spirit of professional cooperation amongst its members; to establish good will and understanding between the public and the accounting profession throughout the State of New Jersey.
The New Jersey Association of Public Accountants was founded in 1947 by a group of dedicated accountants. They recognized the value of self-discipline and the need for an effective Code of Ethics and Rules of Professional Conduct to guide a growing and important profession.
Since its inception, the Association's reliance and influence in New Jersey has achieved major growth and prestige as a result of the dedicated focus on helping the practitioner. These successful results are due to the educational programs at the local and state levels, promoting the competency and reliability of the practitioner to the public, and strict adherence to the Code of Ethics.
Our Association consists of eight chapters located throughout the state. It is governed by a Board of Trustees who are elected by their peers at the chapter level. They each serve a three-year term as a Trustee of the State Association.
These chapters are conveniently located in the following counties:
The Association is fully aware of the necessities of an on-going Educational Program in order to meet the high standards of the Accounting profession.
Seminars are presented regularly during the year and cover Taxation, Accounting and Auditing, along with other related subjects. The speakers are the finest and most knowledgeable. Examples are the Practitioner's Institute Workshops presented on subjects requested by the Association and presented by Internal Revenue and New Jersey Division of Taxation staff. There are three two-day seminars covering Income Taxes, Accounting and Auditing, offered annually.
The New Jersey Association of Public Accountants is an approved sponsor by NJ State Board of Accountancy [#225]; State of NY [Reg. #B-32] and State of PA [Reg. #PX 1 167L] and Internal Revenue Service.
