CPA Day at the Capitol

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.

******REGISTER HERE******

On January 15, 2019, join hundreds of your fellow CalCPA members as you descend on Sacramento to learn about the issues affecting your profession and to represent the CPA profession during meetings with California State Assemblymembers and Senators in the State Capitol. We encourage all CalCPA members to attend as no prior experience or training is required. All you need to do is attend and CalCPA will provide you with the training you need to be successful. 

CalCPA member and first-time CPA Day participant Debe Gillespie provides a glimpse into what you can expect.

CPA Day is CalCPA's annual event to kick-off its advocacy efforts for the upcoming legislative year. California is at a crossroads and we need your help to make sure CPAs remain an integral asset to businesses and consumers throughout the state. All CalCPA members are encouraged to attend this free event to help increase the visibility of the profession in the political arena.
