Statewide President's Message

Brian M. Iwata, CPA

Aloha and Welcome to the Hawaii Association of Public Accountant (HAPA) website.  Please spend some time navigating through our new website to learn more about our organization.

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 to contact me or any officer listed.

Thank you.
