The call for FICPA volunteers is now open.

Serving on a committee of the Florida Institute of CPAs enables members to play an influential role in shaping the future of the profession and this association. It also provides an excellent opportunity to network with other professionals around the state on projects that increase members’ technical knowledge; influence legislation; define the CPA's role in local, national and global economies; and promote a favorable image of the profession in the eyes of the general public.

How to Get Involved

A Committee request form is sent to all members and is available on the FICPA website. FICPA members select their top three choices for committees

Applications are accepted between February 14 – April 25, 2014.

Appointments are finalized in early May and are confirmed in writing via email the first part of June. Committee appointment is for one year – July through June. Committee re-appointment is not automatic. You must reapply to serve each year during the applicable time period.

Selection Process

Many factors are considered for committee appointment, including individual expertise; previous service; diversity and extent of FICPA-member participation; experience level; geographic location; and firm/company dynamics.

All committee members are evaluated by the executive committee director coordinator; current committee chair and vice chair; and FICPA staff. Appointment recommendations are made considering the stated criteria. The FICPA chair makes final committee appointments, as well as committee chair and vice chair assignments, in May.
