Important Membership Information

It is important that you are aware of the requirements for maintaining membership in the VSCPA. Please review the VSCPA Bylaws (PDF) and the Code of Professional Conduct.

The Peer Review Program is designed to help firms maintain consistent quality control and achieve a higher level of service in the profession. It also lets you know if your firm measures up to the highest professional standards for CPA firms nationwide.

If your firm is performing audits, reviews or compilations and is not currently enrolled in an approved-practice monitoring program, you will need to enroll in the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) or VSCPA Peer Review Program.

If you are a proprietor, shareholder or employee of a public accounting firm, your firm must be enrolled in an approved practice-monitoring program to qualify for membership.

VSCPA membership dues are nonrefundable.
