Our Members Say It Best!
“Being involved in CPTA first as an attendee, then as a volunteer, and now as a member of the executive, has really given me the inside track on all things property tax related across the country. The knowledge, coupled with the professional relationships I have formed with other members have been integral to my career growth. I would recommend involvement in the CPTA for any and all levels of property tax service professionals.”
“Membership in the CPTA has been extremely rewarding to me. Professionally the CPTA is a valuable resource as their communication and education not only focuses on the latest nationally, but also more local areas of interest. Their advocacy efforts on the sometimes daunting task of fair and equitable taxation is integral to meaningful reform. On a personal level the membership is comprised of many similarly-minded professionals considered to be great friends.”
“Shortly after becoming a CPTA member, I became involved in the local chapter administration and later, at the national level where I eventually had the privilege of representing CPTA members as President. This opportunity gave me invaluable experience, skills and knowledge that I continue to apply to my every day professional and personal life – that, and making friendships that will last a lifetime! It quickly became clear to me that the CPTA’s main focus is its members and the level of education, information-sharing, networking opportunities and overall representation of its members is unparalleled.”
“Members of the CPTA are a wealth of knowledge guided by accountability and integrity. There is a passion for keeping the members informed and making them successful.”
“I have been a member of the CPTA since 1990…my membership to the CPTA keeps me informed of all ongoing industry news across Canada. A membership to the CPTA is vital for any industry professional.”
“Being part of the CPTA has allowed me to stay up to date with changes in the industry, tribunals and legislation through the excellent communication to members that the association offers. I find the conferences and seminars are excellent opportunities to personally meet tax collectors, assessors and others working in the field from across the country, helping to build professional relationships and discuss valuation and tax.”
