Key Person Contact (KPC) Program
The FICPA has over 300 KPCs who serve as an information network, both transmitting information to legislators and reporting information about proposed or pending state legislation to the FICPA.
Who can be/is a KPC?
Key Person Contacts are CPAs who have developed relationships with their local Florida legislators and recognize the difference that relationship can make in the legislative process. A single letter or call from a CPA the legislator knows and trusts can make a huge difference in an issue's outcome. Any CPA who has a relationship with a Florida legislator can be a KPC!
Why do we need KPCs?
The absolute backbone of any successful legislative endeavor is the ability to quickly reach legislators and communicate effectively and concisely in order to convince a majority of the benefits of a given concept. KPCs allow us to maintain numerous lines of communication with state legislative bodies to convey our position(s) to legislators on a moment’s notice during the hectic days of the legislative session. This frequent personal contact from CPAs assures the FICPA of a strong voice regarding critical issues concerning the accounting profession.
