There are FICPA members-only email discussion groups designed for interactive discussions with your peers. Our Listservs are designed to improve communication among like-minded members, offer a forum for exchanging ideas, and allow you to benefit from the experience, knowledge, and wisdom of your peers. There is a Listserv for each of the professional interest FICPA Sections as well other areas of interest including Federal Taxation Listserv.
There are currently eight online communities for members to access Florida-specific accounting news, rules changes, case law, best practices, business leadership tools and more. Each Section has their own set of Listservs, monthly e-newsletters, practice tools and mini websites.
The FICPA serves your needs at a local level through its 27 chapters across Florida. These chapters are further grouped into six geographical regions. Each region and the chapters within that region hold and promote programming of local interest and provide a conduit for communication with the FICPA leadership. Regional and local chapter members also provide locally elected representatives to serve on the FICPA Board of Governors.
With over 30 committees within the FICPA membership, members have several opportunities to connect with other members, excel their leadership and contribute to the Institute and the profession.
As a committee of the FICPA, the Young CPA Committee (YCPA) is geared towards developing ways to engage CPAs 35 and under in the accounting profession.
Annual Liaison Meetings
Each year, members may submit questions to representatives from the IRS, the DBPR Division of Land Sales, Condominiums and Mobile Homes, and the Florida Department of Revenue through various committee and Section liaison meetings.
