CPA Advocacy Days 2022

Presented by the Florida Institute of CPAs

Effectively communicating with lawmakers is paramount to our success in Florida’s governmental process. Whether we connect virtually or in person, our legislative relationships determine whether our correspondence lands in the “first response” or “reply later” file.

On Jan. 6, the FICPA will hold its Second Annual Virtual Advocacy Day. On Jan. 12, we’ll host our first full membership fly-in event – Hike the Hill – in Tallahassee.

We cordially invite all members to attend one or both events. Please join us as we unite to protect the CPA profession in Florida.
