Maintain your Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license with NASBA® accredited CPE courses ABOUT THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF STATE BOARDS OF ACCOUNTANCY (NASBA) Founded in 1908, the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) has served as an association dedicated to enhancing the effectiveness of the country's 55 state boards of accountancy for more than 100 years. As a driving force within the accounting profession, NASBA accomplishes its mission by creating a forum for accounting regulators and practitioners to address issues relevant to the viability of the accounting profession. NASBA, with the mission to enhance the effectiveness and advance the common interests of the Boards of Accountancy, is a reputable and trusted resource in regulatory and professional services designed to effectively aid boards in their goal to protect the public. MAINTAINING A CPA LICENSE Upon completion of the CPA exam, CPAs must meet requirements defined by their licensing state board of accountancy to maintain the license; earning a CPA license is just the beginning. Many state licensing boards require that CPAs maintain and improve their skills through continuing professional education (CPE) courses and other opportunities for professional development. The National Registry of CPE Sponsors is a program offered by NASBA to recognize CPE program sponsors who provide programs in accordance with nationally recognized standards. Many State Boards of Accountancy require CPAs to earn required CPE credits through companies approved on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. CPE CREDIT AND LICENSE RENEWAL RESOURCES Each State Board of Accountancy in the 55 jurisdictions has unique CPE and licensing renewal requirements, and the intricate and ever-changing rules and regulations of the state boards of accountancy present challenges to CPAs and firms when trying to understand and comply with them. Review these NASBA resources to verify your state board's requirements and ensure your continuing professional education meets the board's criteria: ● National Registry of CPE Sponsors - CPE Requirements ● State Boards of Accountancy ● NASBA contact information
