Georgia CPAs Unite at State Capitol for 6th Annual CPA Day
More than 100 members of The Georgia Society of Certified Public Accountants (GSCPA) gathered at the state Capitol on Jan. 25 to advocate for the accounting profession.
“CPA Day at the Gold Dome provides our members with the opportunity to make a real connection with their elected officials. CPAs are uniquely qualified to provide Georgia’s legislators with insight into the issues facing the accounting profession, the business community and the general public.”
— GSCPA CEO Boyd Search
This year, Sen. Michael Williams introduced Senate Resolution 22 to recognize CPA Day and the Society for its valuable contributions on behalf of the State of Georgia.
“It is important that CPAs and CPA Day at the Gold Dome are recognized. CPAs serve as an invaluable resource to the Georgia General Assembly.”
— State Sen. Michael Williams
Attendees were provided updates on current legislative issues by CPAs from the Georgia General Assembly including Sen. Williams, Rep. Knight, Rep. Carson, Rep. Mosby and Rep. Wilkerson. Afterward, Lucia N. Smeal, J.D., clinical associate professor of accounting, shared how the new administration’s tax reform plans could affect CPAs.
