Hawaii Association of Public Accountants

Brian Iwata, CPA, HAPA State President

Welcome to the Hawaii Association of Public Accountants (HAPA) website.  We represent public accounting practitioners throughout the State of Hawaii, and HAPA is the only accounting and tax organization with Chapters on Oahu, Maui, Big Island and Kauai.  We are volunteer driven and rely upon members to help the accounting profession and fellow practitioners.

We provide accounting and tax seminars with substantive continuing professional education for CPAs, EAs, and those requiring IRS approved credits.  We also provide opportunities for members to network through various social, community and sporting events.  We are also actively involved in legislative activities to help protect the interests of the public and small to mid-sized CPA firms in Hawaii, while continuing to advocate for high licensing standards for CPAs practicing in Hawaii.

We welcome those who are interested in joining HAPA.  We provide special membership rates for Young Professionals and Students.  Should you have any questions about HAPA, please feel free to contact me or any officer listed.

Please take some time and explore all of the various functions HAPA has to offer.
