Georgia CPAs Advocate for Profession at The Gold Dome

GSCPA Members Gather for 13th Annual CPA Day at the State Capitol

ATLANTA (Jan. 25, 2024) — Almost 150 members of The Georgia Society of Certified Public Accountants (GSCPA) recently met at the state Capitol to share their thoughts on important issues facing the accounting profession with their elected officials.

CPA Day attendees enjoyed a networking breakfast followed by a legislative update. Georgia Department of Revenue Commissioner, Frank O’Connell was in attendance.

"It's vital that the profession makes a connection between the work that they do for the business community, for families; with our states elected officials. Making that connection, sharing information, problems and resolutions, is what brings about great legislation and the great environment that we have in Georgia." GSCPA CEO Boyd Search said.

Each member of the Georgia CPA Caucus: Chairman John Carson, Rep. David Wilkerson and Chairman Billy Hickman provided an update on key legislative issues. Attendees also enjoyed a presentation from Clay Huffman and Paul Ziga from the Georgia State Board of Accountancy.

The Georgia Society of CPAs is committed to serving as the voice of the CPA profession in Georgia as well as advocating for the interests of its members and the business community before legislative and regulatory bodies.
