Its responsibilities and activities, with the exception of its day-to-day administration, are directed by a Board of Directors. Directors are geographically disbursed and politically balanced between Republicans and Democrats. All directors must be members of the Florida CPA/PAC and must be committed to analyzing candidates and promoting the Florida CPA/PAC. The directors must be sustaining members and serve without compensation.
The objective of the Florida CPA/PAC is to help protect the trust, confidence, and esteem the CPA certificate holds in the public’s eye. Voluntary contributions to the Florida CPA/PAC will be used to support candidates running for the Florida House, Florida Senate, and Florida Cabinet who will be educated and able to make a difference in Tallahassee when bad public policy is proposed.
The Florida CPA/PAC is a completely separate entity from the FICPA, supported solely by the voluntary contributions of members of the FICPA and others. The Florida CPA/PAC is registered as a corporation with the Florida Division of Corporations and as a Political Committee with the Division of Elections within the Florida Department of State.
In 2001, the Florida CPA/PAC was separated into three geographic regions. Each chapter is “nested” into one of the three regions. Members are assigned to one of the three regional CPA/PACs based on geographic location:
North (11 chapters)
Central (9 chapters)
South (includes 7 chapters)
