Working On Your Behalf

FICPA represents the profession's interests in areas of public policy formation, standard-setting, and rule-making that impacts our members, the accounting profession, and Florida’s business climate.  We cultivate relationships with legislators and regulators, monitor issues, provide input on legislation and other topics, and actively maintain relationships with key agencies.  Through the Florida CPA Political Action Committees, we identify and support the election of candidates running for the Florida House, Florida Senate and Florida Cabinet who share our viewpoint on policy issues important to the CPA profession in Florida.
