Welcome to CPAPlus Â Network
CPAPlus Network is a national, non-profit, peer-to-peer network of small CPA firms, formed to exchange best practices specific to our challenges and culture. Through the collective expertise and experiences of firms from across the country, we are effectively overcoming specific challenges many of us face.
The Network was created by CPAs for CPAs as a resource for improving efficiencies and increasing revenue. By sharing best practices through various methodologies, we have been able to produce effective systems without the high cost of traditional peer groups.
2016 Regional Meetings

Each participant will receive 5-6 CPE for attendance.Â The first round is listed below, with the rest of the year's dates listed on the Regional Meeting page.
Understanding Clientsâ€™ Needs in Todayâ€™s Culture â€“ Many aspects of todayâ€™s culture and society change constantly.Â As a result, so do clientsâ€™ perceptions of what is valuable to them.Â In order to gain client dependenceâ€”and therefore, de-commoditizeâ€”we have to begin by understanding our clientsâ€™ perspectives.
Competing in 2016:Â Critical Practice Development Processes â€“ To step into the role of that of a navigator for clients, our firms must make some important changes.Â Areas of discussion will include new types of engagements, developing employees, and new strategies for collaboration.
Using Deadlines to Increase Revenue â€“ Deadlines, despite being catalysts for stress and longer hours, also create significant opportunities for revenue growth.Â We will discuss how to capture these opportunities through more effective contact with clients.
Mediation Techniques â€“ While helping clients with their businesses and personal lives, we often end up in situations that require mediation skills.Â As a result, the network is launching a new program on mediation skills.Â This will be led by Paul Jozef, JD, president of the Center of Complete Communication.
Open Roundtable â€“ Subject-specific to attendees and their current challenges.Â
