National Society of Black Certified Public Accountants

The mission of the National Society of Black Certified Public Accountants, Inc. (“NSBCPA”) is to increase the number of Black CPAs by providing the most relevant knowledge, resources, and advocacy; and to promote cultural competence, diversity, and inclusion within the profession. Less than 1% of all CPAs in the United States are Black CPAs. Black CPAs are by far the most underrepresented group within the CPA profession. With this in mind, the NSBCPA was founded in June 2020 in the State of Illinois as a membership non-profit organization.
