Welcome to the website of the New Mexico Society of Certified Public Accountants. The NMSCPA celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2005. As the premier professional association for certified public accountants, it started out with 6 members in 1930, and now boasts a membership base of over 1,600.
Members of the association are CPAs in public practice, industry, education, or government, or they may be students enrolled in a qualified accounting program at one of New Mexico's colleges or universities. CPAs in public practice assist with taxes, conduct audits, serve as consultants on a variety of business issues, or assist with personal and corporate financial planning. A CPA in industry could be the controller, VP of finance, or CEO, among many other positions, within a company. CPAs also work for local and state government agencies, and are the professors of the accounting programs at colleges and universities across the state.
If you are a CPA just starting your career or looking to enhance it, there are simple, easy to read, and informative articles on job and career planning available on the website in our Career & Job-Search Tips series.
CPAs must meet strict reporting requirements for three-years periods depending on the status of their certificates. As a number one member service, the NMSCPA will offer 80 continuing education courses to its members. You can search for any of our courses from this site.
The NMSCPA has several resources available to the public. If you need the service of a CPA, but don't know where to turn, there is a referral service that will help you find a CPA who does work in the specific area you need.
