Chapter History

90 year anniversary logo

The Houston CPA Society was formed on May 22, 1928 at the Houston Club. The purpose of the organization at that time was to promote fellowship among accountants in Houston and advancement of the profession through friendly cooperation.
Five committees were formed to create monthly programs and a six-person board of directors was created led by C.W. Wittman, Jr.

Today, the Houston Chapter is the largest chapter in the state of Texas and in the country serving 7,400 members in our 13 county area. The chapter is larger than 42 state societies and is served by a 7 person staff, 25 person Board of Directors and over 20 different committees.
