Mentor Program
The Society has a mentor program for new CPAs. It provides the new CPA with a contact person within the profession. It's a way to learn about the profession, opportunities, how to get involved, career ideas, etc. To participate as a mentor or a new CPA, simply call the Society office at 701-775-7100. To participate, everyone is required to be members or affiliates.

Other Opportunities
If an ongoing committee role doesn't sound right for you, there are other ways to be of service to your profession – on your own schedule:

  • Prepare a newsletter article.
  • Be a "host" for a new CPA at annual conventions
  • Contact a few nonmembers and encourage them to join.
