Virtual Advocacy Day

Hike the Hill


Virtual Advocacy Day, taking place Jan. 18, is an opportunity for members to learn more about the FICPA’s advocacy efforts and engage with state lawmakers on the issues impacting the CPA profession during the 2023 Legislative Session. Our goal is to help state legislators understand the issues impacting CPAs in Florida and show them the profession is committed to being an integral, active part of the legislative process in our state. 

As part of this half-day virtual event, members will gain an inside look into the legislative process, how Florida lawmakers evaluate bills and issues impacting CPAs, and how the FICPA works to pass favorable legislation on your behalf. 

Schedule of events:

  • FICPA Legislative Briefing 
    • FICPA Chief External Affairs Officer Justin Thames 
    • FICPA Outside Consultant Jennifer Green, Liberty Partners of Tallahassee 
  • CPA Lawmaker Panel – Interactive
