We actively follow the Florida Legislature and created this Advocacy Toolkit to assist our membership in effectively advocating on behalf of the accounting profession.  We will continue to add resources to this toolkit as needed.  If you would like to suggest advocacy resources for this toolkit, please contact your Governmental Affairs Team.
