ACCA USA history & mission
ACCA USA is ACCA's headquarters stateside. ACCA USA was formally established in California in 1987, when 280 members and 193 students were living in the United States. Through our membership support, educational infrastructure, and forward-thinking research, we offer top-quality training, qualifications, networking opportunities and resources for career advancement to the global finance leaders of today and the CFOs of tomorrow.
Our finance and accounting professionals gain membership through our internationally recognized ACCA qualification which offers the most up-to-date, relevant, and consistent accounting qualification available, delivering finance and accounting knowledge and skills as well as professional values.
Beyond the qualification, ACCA USA's 11 national chapters are important forums for networking, job searching, and continuing professional development. Learn more about our USA Chapter Network or find out about upcoming Chapter Events.
Moreover, ACCA USA takes numerous actions on behalf of its members, working to conduct surveys and research while developing a wide roster of programs to enhance the organization's contributions to the finance and accounting profession and to its membership.
We believe that the future of accountancy depends on shaping public policy, as well as demonstrating thought leadership in education, training, and ethics. ACCA USA and its members ensure that this happens by playing key roles in building the global accountancy profession and working with many other bodies at international, regional, and local levels.
