Over the last 12 months, we have worked diligently to lay out a new vision, mission and strategy for the FICPA.
Our Chairs – past and present – Board and Council members, and staff have put together a detailed plan aimed at growth, innovation, and responding to what you told us were your most acute needs.
This is a strategy that puts you, our valued FICPA members, at the center of all that we do.
As you’ll see in detail here, this five-year plan, taking us into 2027, is comprised of four central pillars:
- Diversifying our membership and learning programs
- Enhancing our member-value proposition
- Strengthening our advocacy and public policy engagement
- Building a Scholarship Foundation for the future
This is a strategy born out of our efforts to Protect, Promote, Educate and Innovate. We’re committed to meeting the needs of our diverse membership and supporting CPAs throughout their career. We’re here to recruit students, empower Young CPAs, and partner with senior leaders, as we take you a comprehensive member journey through the FICPA, taking your career to the next level.
As we set our plan in motion and take our next step, we’ll soon complete our ongoing relocation to Downtown Orlando. Last month, I approved the final building plans for our brand-new FICPA headquarters. Members will soon be able to visit us at 250 S. Orange Avenue in the Park Building – attached to what was formerly known as the SunTrust Center.
This 11,000-square-foot space was chosen specifically for its proximity to FICPA member firms and organizations. Construction will soon begin as we build out the new HQ, and we hope to have FICPA staff moved some time in late 2022 or early 2023.
As we prepare to write the next chapter in our history, I am immensely grateful to the FICPA volunteer leaders who have helped execute our relocation.
The last two years have been a time of a great change and transition for the FICPA. Soon, we’ll hit the ground running in our new home – equipped with our new vision, mission and plan.
To paraphrase our new 2022-23 Chair Julian Dozier, it’s a great day to be a member of the FICPA!
