Advocacy Day and
Midyear Board of Directors Meeting

JANUARY 24-25, 2023  |  AUSTIN, TX


The 2023 Advocacy Day and Midyear Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Tuesday & Wednesday, January 24-25, 2023 in Austin, TX.

We are excited to be back in person for the 2023 Advocacy Day program! We have an interesting and informative program scheduled for the morning of January 24 including elected officials invited to speak, Scott Braddock of the Quorum Repot, a federal issues update, and a discussion of the TXCPA Legislative Agenda. Legislative visits will occur in the afternoon of January 24. This year TXCPA will schedule all legislative office visits for Advocacy Day attendees. TXCPA staff will coordinate directly with legislative offices to schedule meetings between TXCPA members and offices. Once the meetings are scheduled, information about time and location of the meetings will be uploaded into the Advocacy Day app so that all TXCPA members will have the details about their meetings. In addition, the app will include maps of the Capitol and the accompanying talking points about the Legislative agenda.

On Wednesday, the results of the leadership elections for 2023-24 will be shared and two important proposals will be presented by the Membership Task Force and the Governance Committee for vote by the Board. 

In an effort to provide a detailed overview of the Membership and Governance proposals and allow time for Board members to review and ask questions prior to the meeting and vote, two informational were held for the Board. These were recorded and details have been shared with Board members. Please contact Holly McCauley with any questions on how to access this information.
