January 26, 2021 | 9 a.m. – noon
During Advocacy Day, you’ll hear from engaging expert speakers on topics like the recent election, major issues facing the legislature during this session, issues affecting CPAs and the accounting profession this session, and TXCPA’s legislative priorities. We’ll also help you prepare for advocating in a virtual environment.
Virtual Legislative Visits
January 26, 27 & 28 | Afternoon
While our program will be virtual, and groups will not be allowed to visit the Capitol for Advocacy Day as we have in the past, it is still very important that we reach out to our legislators and have a strong presence. Because this is not business as usual, we will need to coordinate these visits differently than in years past. We are planning virtual afternoon visits with legislators on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (Jan. 26-28).
The TXCPA Government Affairs team is currently working with legislators to schedule dates and times for legislator meetings. As members register for the meeting, they will be asked to confirm their willingness to participate in a legislative visit. Registrants will receive a calendar invite for their respective legislator visit, based on the member's home address, once date and time are confirmed for those meetings. You can check the address TXCPA has on file in your member profile.
