About the CTCPA Education Center
The CTCPA Education Center is home to the Connecticut Society of Certified Public Accountants. Since 1908, we've been the professional organization for Connecticut's CPAs; today, we stand 6,000 strong.
The CTCPA Education Center was custom-designed to meet a need we found lacking in the area: a clean, modern, flexible space with all of the amenities at no extra charge.
Designed for professionals, by professionals.
For the past 30 years, we've provided our members with continuing professional education. In the beginning, similar to many other companies, our administrative office was in downtown Hartford and we were forced to rent space at hotels and banquet facilities to host our meetings and seminars.
In those early years, we experienced firsthand the many frustrations of hosting programming at external sites. Arriving to find that the room layout is wrong. Paying significant upcharges for every extra extension cord or microphone. Listening to members complain about a lack of parking or expensive parking or uncomfortable seating.
In 1999, we took matters into our own hands when we moved our office into an existing building on Brook Street in Rocky Hill that included training rooms in the back. We adapted that space to fit our needs, but working within the parameters of an existing structure did limit us.
In 2009, we learned a brand new office park was being planned for right across the street. We found our new home!
So we built the CTCPA Education Center from the ground up specifically to meet our needs as a training center. From the various layouts of training rooms, the soundproof divider walls, and the audiovisual system to the bright, clean food court and lobby, ergonomic chairs, and modern furnishings, every inch of the CTCPA Education Center was custom designed and built to be the best possible training center for our members.
We're always looking to improve our space, too, to stay on the cutting edge. That's why, in 2015, we ripped out the carpet, dug trenches in the floor, and ran electrical power through the floor, adding recessed outlets throughout all classrooms so that each and every attendee can safely and easily plug in his or her laptop or electronic device.
We're so proud of our home that we want to share it with everyone - schedule a visit today to come see our space.
Welcome to your new favorite meeting space.
