Sometimes, you need to crowdsource information from a community of knowledgeable peers. When that happens, the CPA Forum is here at your disposal. CPA Members may post questions, comment on other posts, and subscribe to the CPA Forum for automatic updates. Check in on the CPA Forum on a regular basis. The more participation we have, the stronger our community will be.
Below are instructions for using the CPA Forum. If you ever need assistance with the CPA Forum, contact Elise Freed-Brown at 312-380-6789.
First, log in
The CPA Forum is public, meaning anyone can view the topics and comments. Only CPA members may post topics and comments. Please log in to participate.
Finding the forum
If you are starting at the homepage, the link to the CPA Forum is listed in the menu under Community:
When you click "CPA Forum," You see the available forum plus the latest activity. Click "CPA Forum" to view all posts:
Posting a topic
If you are logged in, you will see a small, grey menu above the forum posts. Click "New Topic" to create a new discussion:
Clicking "New Topic" will open an HTML editor that allows you to add and edit text, post pictures and video, and add hyperlinks to your post.
Commenting on posts
You have two options for leaving a comment. If you only want to respond with text, use the Quick Reply box provided. If you want to respond with HTML text, pictures, or hyperlinks, click "Reply Using Full Editor" under the box:
The full editor allows you to embed pictures, video, and hyperlinks into your response.
Subscribing to the CPA Forum allows you to receive instant updates on posts and comments via email. To subscribe, click the Forum Actions dropdown menu next to the "New Topic" link, and click the subscribe link:
After you click the "subscribe" link, it automatically becomes an "unsubscribe" link, which will take you off the mailing list for instant updates. You may unsubscribe from the forum at any time.
Have fun with the CPA Forum.
