GSCPA Key Person Program
As a GSCPA member, you have a unique opportunity to influence the future of your profession by joining GSCPA’s Key Person Program. GSCPA’s Key Person Program is a vital component to GSCPA’s advocacy efforts, getting Georgia CPAs involved in grassroots action at the state level.
Key Persons are those CPAs who are willing to contact their legislator to discuss issues affecting the CPA profession.
Key Persons have few responsibilities until needed. When an issue or challenge arises regarding current and future legislation for which GSCPA needs grassroots input, the Society will activate Key Persons. GSCPA will provide you with necessary information so that you can contact your legislator via calls or a personal visit. If you have a relationship with a legislator, or are willing to establish one, please join and have your voice heard.
