I just got my CPA license in CT, but I live/work in NY. I did my undergrad in CT, which is why I initially applied for my license in CT. I am going to apply for reciprocity in NY, but I was wondering if it mattered which state society I joined – CT or NY? I am required to join in CT since my license is in CT, or can I just join the NY State Society? If I can avoid paying two state society dues on top of the AICPA dues, I would like to.
Thanks guys!January 18, 2016 at 2:25 am #755067MaLoTuParticipant
I think it would be most advantageous to join in NY since that is where you live/practice. I don't think they will have a problem with it and you do not have to belong to your licensing state's CPA society.January 18, 2016 at 11:51 pm #755068SkynetParticipant

i generally dont recommend joining most of those groups as they are very expensive. but they can provide some potential networking if you are interested along with some benefitsMarch 11, 2020 at 2:37 pm #2959931ReckedParticipant
They are expensive, but they are also the lobbying group to look out for your profession.
I would go with the NY society, as you are most interested in protecting your profession in the state you work in.

There’s a local CPA biker club that I may join later down the road when I reach 40 years of age and go through my first mid life crisis. I’m still debating this as one of the requirements is a tattoo of gaap on your left arm. Not a fan of tattoos, much less accounting related tattoosMarch 11, 2020 at 10:57 pm #2960399Jeff Elliott, CPAKeymaster
Whichever one has the meetings that you'll most likely attend. It's about networking. I keep my AICPA membership active to support lobbying for the profession (and discounted CPE).
