Advocating for CPAs

MACPA plays a key role in protecting the interests of CPAs throughout Maryland.

MACPA’s advocacy efforts address policy issues in Annapolis and Washington D.C., as well as regulatory requirements from the Maryland Board of Public Accountancy.

MACPA members—and all members of our profession—benefit from MACPA’s efforts in seeking the most favorable laws and rules in place for the success of CPAs across all sectors.
