Receiving Wall Certificates
The Board provides new licensees with both a wallet card and a wall certificate reflecting their status as a CPA. The wallet card is sent when the new CPA registers with the Board. Because of volume and the cost of printing, wall certificates are printed only twice a year, right before each swearing-in ceremony. This can result in a delay of up to 8 months between when a new CPA registers and when he or she receives the wall certificate.

After a new CPA registers, the CPA is sent an invitation to attend the next swearing-in ceremony. These ceremonies are held in June and December of each year. Those who attend are presented their certificates at the ceremony. Certificates are mailed the following week to those who did not attend.
