CPA PAC

The CPA-PAC Board is a nonpartisan committee responsible for the generation and distribution of funds to state political candidates who support PICPA and the CPA profession. CPA-PAC contributions, in concert with PICPA advocacy efforts, safeguard the profession’s future by providing a voice in the legislative process. The CPA-PAC is supported solely by the voluntary contributions of members of the PICPA.
