Ethics & Standards

Active MSA members maintain high professional standards voluntarily adopted by the membership to ensure quality work by our members. Adherence to a strict code of ethics is required by all members.

Your Professional Growth

Expand your accounting and tax counseling skills through continuous study. The MSA certificate on your wall tells your clients that your qualifications have been tested and are constantly updated, and that they can rely on your independence and flexibility to solve a wide range of client problems-reliably and competently. Our clients demand current information, and we can offer a current perspective through continuing Professional Education. MSA represents your interests before the Missouri Legislature and Executive agencies. While largely unsung, MSA's work to protect our right to practice in Missouri is one of MSA's greatest benefits. MSA maintains a continuous liaison with state agencies and departments whose decisions affect your daily practice, and the daily lives of your clients. MSA has active chapters in cities in and around St. Louis, Kansas City, Mid-Missouri and Springfield. Exchanging ideas and solving problems with friends and fellow professionals - that's the heart of a MSA monthly chapter meeting. Members also meet with experts who review topics important to accountants and tax professionals.
