CPA Day at the Capitol

CPA Day at the Capitol is one of the most important annual events for members to attend. Did you know during each legislative session, bills are introduced that impact you, your clients or your employer? As the business climate continues to change and with legislators that can now serve up to 12 years in office, we need to build bipartisan relationships with those who share our commitment to the CPA profession. Our efforts are most effective when the legislator has the opportunity to sit face-to-face with someone—like you—who is directly affected by a specific issue.

CalCPA members will meet with members of the Legislature to discuss current issues facing the CPA profession in California. Attendees will also get to the opportunity to meet their elected representatives and discuss California’s business climate from the CPA’s perspective in their district.
