Get Involved with Advocacy at the Indiana CPA Society

 

Become a CPA Advocate. Advocacy may seem intimidating, but it’s not. It starts with signing up to be a CPA Advocate and becoming familiar with the Society’s key advocacy initiatives. You will receive resources to help you stay informed on legislative issues and the Society’s advocacy initiatives. It will give you more background about what’s happening with key legislative issues and Society advocacy initiatives. Your elected officials need to know you are a resource to help address how bills will impact local businesses, your work and the profession. Join us as a trusted business resource and advocate.
