The Society has a mentor program for new CPAs. It provides the new CPA with a contact person within the profession. It's a way to learn about the profession, opportunities, how to get involved, career ideas, etc. To participate as a mentor or a new CPA, simply call the Society office at 701-775-7111. To participate, everyone is required to be members or affiliates.
If an ongoing committee role doesn't sound right for you, there are other ways to be of service to your profession – on your own schedule:
- Prepare a newsletter article.
- Be a "host" for a new CPA at annual conventions
- Contact a few nonmembers and encourage them to join.
