Welcome to the New WSCPA.org

by Paul Carboni | Mar 13, 2020

Does our website seem a bit … different today? We’re so glad you noticed! During the past year, the WSCPA has been working to bring you a new and much improved web experience. We’ve implemented a host of new features and tools to help you get the most out of your membership with Washington’s premier professional association for CPAs. In this blog post, it is my pleasure to introduce you to a few of them, starting with…

A Better My WSCPA Experience

One of the first big changes you’ll notice is your new member dashboard. The first time you access the new My WSCPA you’ll need to reset your password before you can login—an inconvenience we know, but a necessary one. After the reset, you’ll gain access to a completely redesigned screen full of information related to your membership. Your dashboard will include information about recent activity on our new, members-only social platform, an easy-to-read CPE progress bar to help you stay on top of your continuing education, reminders for events you’ve signed up for that are happening soon, and more.

Dig a little deeper in this section and you’ll find an easy-to-edit member profile, tools to manage your firm affiliation, a quick view of resource groups, committees and chapter you belong to, and a place to review past purchases. Take a few minutes to look around, and make sure your profile information is accurate.

Faster and Easier Checkout

We’re excited to launch a sleek new cart and checkout process. As you purchase CPE, renew your membership, or make charitable contributions you’ll experience a streamlined, cleaner, quicker interface. Creating a guest account for checkout and registering guests for events are also much easier to do in the new WSCPA.org. Plus, we’re excited to announce that we’ve implemented the ability for you to securely save your credit card for even faster checkouts in the future.

Robust Tools to Track Your CPE

The CPE Tracker on your member dashboard is just the tip of the iceberg. After you get a quick check on how close you are to meeting your CPE requirement from that feature, click the “View Full Transcript” button to gain access to our brand-new, online CPE management center, WSCPA LCVista CPE Suite. Here, you’ll be able to view and download a record of every CPE course you’ve taken with us, quickly search your transcript to find a specific course, and, of course, download your hard-earned CPE certificates.

But that’s not all! Click the “Compliance” tab on the sidebar to see a breakdown of the credits you’ve earned so far by type, and how close you are to fulfilling specific credit requirements. Click “Compliance Detail” and you’ll see a report showing you exactly which courses count towards which requirements.

Over the coming months, we’ll be rolling out additional features in LCVista to streamline the way you take online and on-demand CPE. Stay tuned!

More Opportunity to “Connect”

As a WSCPA member, you are part of a community. We’ve long known that one of our most important functions as an organization is to provide you with opportunities to collaborate, socialize, and celebrate with your fellow members. Now, we’re expanding your ability to do so online. Our new Connect platform gives you the ability to find and chat with members from across the state. You can join groups organized around your interests and participate in discussions on topics such as busy season survival tips.

We’ve also moved WSCPA committees and resource groups into Connect, which will allow you to harness the collaborative power of Connect to enhance the way your committee or resource group works together.

Streamlined Navigation

This detail may seem like a small touch, but we think it will improve every interaction you have with our website. We’ve simplified our navigation structure, and made the most important parts of our website more prominent. We’ve also combed through our site structure and rearranged some things to make it easier for you to find useful information.

That’s the Tour. Now, How About you Take it for a Spin?

We’ve worked hard to improve your experience on the WSCPA website, and we think you’ll be much happier with this new experience. But you don’t need to take our word for it. Explore the new website. See what you think. As always, WSCPA staff will be available by phone, email, or live chat to help answer any questions you might have. If you have any feedback you want to provide, send it to webmaster@wscpa.org.
