A Message from the CPA-PAC Chair

Dear PICPA members: 

Thanks to you and members like you, the PICPA has a strong and effective presence at the Pennsylvania Capitol in Harrisburg. The PICPA has the reputation for being an unbiased, technical resource for state lawmakers to turn to on legislation that impacts Pennsylvania’s business community. Having a voice in the public policy making process is one component of advocacy. But there is a political component, as well.

CPA-PAC, the PICPA’s political arm, supports candidates to the state legislature. Dues cannot support funds for CPA-PAC. All funding for CPA-PAC must be personal (no corporate contributions) and voluntary. 

As a member of the PICPA, you receive the benefits of a full-time government relations team in Harrisburg that is constantly monitoring major issues affecting you, your business or clients, and the profession overall. Take a look at our recent legislative accomplishments and successes.

Despite these successes, we cannot rest on our laurels. Relationship-building is key in Harrisburg, and you can help! I ask that you please take a moment to join your colleagues in making an investment in the CPA-PAC today. Your investment will ensure that the lawmakers being elected understand the value of the profession’s expertise, and your ongoing efforts ensure that those individuals remain in office.

Thank you,

R. Charles Waring, CPA, CITP, CISA
Chair, CPA-PAC Board of Trustees
