FICPA leadership consists of the Executive Committee, Board of Governors, and Chapter leaders. The Executive Committee includes the FICPA chair, chair-elect, seven directors and the FICPA President/CEO, who serves as the secretary-treasurer (non-voting). Together, the committee implements the Board of Governors' policies and oversees the Institute's activities. Each officer, with the exception of the President/CEO, serves a one-year term that runs from July 1 to June 30.
Every year, Florida CPA Today profiles the Executive Committee's chair-elect and directors, asking them to share their thoughts on pressing issues and making a difference through the FICPA. You can read more about them here:
Board of Governors

Effective July 2, 2011, all other past presidents will serve on the BOG, but will not have voting rights on the board; past presidents/chairs will retain their right to vote as general FICPA members.
