The Wisconsin Institute of Certified Public Accountants (WICPA) is the premier professional organization dedicated to enhancing the success of all CPAs. Founded in 1905, WICPA membership consists of nearly 8,000 members who actively work in public accounting, business and industry, government and education.

The WICPA serves as a central source of information for its members, offering educational programs and representing the interests of CPAs before state and federal agencies and legislators. The WICPA also works to enhance and promote the image of the CPA with the general public, media, legislators, educators and students.

The WICPA offers networking, professional development and opportunities to get involved in local and statewide initiatives. At the national level, CPAs can belong to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), headquartered in New York City with offices in New Jersey, Washington, D.C. and Durham, N.C. Each state also has its own society/organization independent of the AICPA. CPAs can choose to belong to the AICPA and/or the WICPA, but it is not a mandatory requirement.
