Why Should I Join?

In today's business environment, your professional organization can make a difference to your career. Join OSCPA – your professional community!

"I joined the OSCPA prior to relocating to Portland to gain insight into the economic and employment landscape.  Now that I'm part of the business community here, I am really enjoying the professional experience shared by OSCPA members at CPE classes and committee meetings.  The membership has a great diversity of industries and experiences that bring multiple perspectives to discussions.  I also appreciate the senior level of experience available to provide mentorship to all of us as we develop our careers."
