Members in public practice do so in firm sizes ranging from the sole practitioner to national firms with many staff in the office, and all sizes in between. The clientele they serve ranges from the individual taxpayer or businessperson to the very largest of international entities. CPAs, in order to maintain their individual licenses, are required to complete 40 hours of continuing professional education annually to keep abreast of the constant changes to tax, audit, and regulatory laws, rulings, and standards. Courses sponsored by RISCPA, including some 60 seminars, and a variety of technical morning sessions. Rhode Island CPAs are integral to the socio-economic fabric of our state. In addition to serving as independent and objective advisors to individuals and businesses, they are active as volunteers in their communities, providing their expertise gratis to myriad charities, causes, civic groups, foundations, and other not-for profit organizations.
