WE Are stronger together.

The National Association of Enrolled Agents is committed to…

Cultivating a dynamic, diverse and collaborative community of sought-after tax professionals who make a difference in the lives of taxpayers. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within our membership, senior leaders, business partners and staff support the growth and evolution required to strengthen our communities and thrive as an association.

We remain committed to growing the enrolled agent profession and to strengthening the pipeline to this career path by increasing diversity within the profession, especially by creating a welcoming community that supports greater access for historically marginalized tax professionals. The adaptability and sustainability of NAEA and awareness of the credential will support broadening the pool of practicing enrolled agents which can be achieved through these efforts.

“We have no hope of solving our problems without harnessing the diversity, the energy, and the creativity of all our people.”
