ASCPA Centennial Celebration
During the Arkansas legislative session of 1915, Act 299 was passed, forming the Arkansas State Board of Public Accountancy. The Act allowed for the licensing of CPAs in the state. On September 11, 1916, a petition was filed and approved establishing the Arkansas Society of Certified Public Accountants.

• Recognition of members and a look back in history in the ASCPA Monthly Newsletters.
• "$100 for 100 Years" Contribution to the ASCPA Student Education Fund by clicking here.
