Advocating for CPAs

Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants, Inc. plays a key role in protecting the interests of CPAs throughout Maryland.

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

Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants, Inc. members—and all members of our profession—benefit from our efforts in seeking the most favorable laws and rules in place for the success of CPAs across all sectors.

Showing our professional strength to our legislators.



Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants, Inc. promotes and protects Maryland CPAs. Bring your voice to Annapolis on January 24, 2019.


 

For our legislative efforts to succeed, we need the voice and participation of our members. Our biggest opportunity for member involvement in legislative advocacy is our annual CPA Day in Annapolis during Maryland’s legislative session.

On CPA Day, we gather to assemble a policy agenda and then meet face-to-face with our delegates and senators to discuss the issues that impact our profession.

CPA Day is free to attend* and participants are eligible for 2 CPE credits.


* Members only

Political Action Committee


Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants, Inc. supports our profession at the policy level by working toward favorable outcomes on legislative issues that affect CPAs; educating legislators about matters that are important to the profession, and, keeping Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants, Inc. members fully informed on legislative and regulatory changes.

When you or your organization contribute to the Maryland CPA Committee on Political Action (CPA PAC) you enable us to keep our agenda in front of the legislators who can dramatically affect our industry and our clients. Membership dues do not support any direct lobbying efforts on behalf of CPAs. That’s where you come in.

For institutional donations to the CPA PAC, please contact Margaret DeRoose at (443) 632.2327.
