DFK/USA seeks independent public accounting firms with a commitment to quality as members of the association. No more than one-third of the association membership may comprise firms that have less than $4 million in total fee income.

All firms must be independent, full-service public accounting firms, able to provide quality tax, audit and specialty services. A firm admitted to DFK/USA must also agree with the mission and goals of the association and commit to meeting them. Being a member also required a significant contribution of time and resources to DFK activities and programs.

Minimum required firm involvement includes:

  • Participation in exchanging ideas and information
  • Provision of technical expertise in a timely manner
  • Attendance at two Board meetings per year
  • Attendance of at least one partner/shareholder at the Annual Conference

Each firm should also offer the assistance of one partner/shareholder as a committee chair, conference presenter, or Executive Committee representative.

Beyond the minimum, the level of involvement and commitment is determined by the individual member firm. By requiring a certain level of participation, DFK/USA ensures that the leadership of the organization remains diverse and all firms have an opportunity to be involved in the planning and direction of the organization. In this manner, DFK/USA furthers its goal of facilitating the interchange of ideas, knowledge and information.

Dues for DFK membership are based on a formula that takes into account each member firm’s billable hours. This formula is subject to change by amendment to the bylaws by the DFK/USA Board of Directors. For a quote, please contact the DFK/USA Executive Officer, Will Eckerson at
