Advocacy Day & Midyear Board of Directors and Members Meeting
During Advocacy Day on Tuesday, January 26, 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. On Wednesday, January 27, hear updates on the new Strategic Plan and Diversity and Inclusion initiatives as well as updates on the future of the profession from a panel of industry leaders.
All registrants are invited to attend a coffee networking session, sponsored by CPACharge, Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. prior to the Board meeting. This session will be held in an online platform, Remo, which will give attendees the ability to visit virtual tables and video chat with other attendees. Additional details will be shared prior to the meeting.
Virtual Legislative Visits
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 will be planning virtual visits with legislators on the afternoons of Tuesday, January 26, Wednesday, January 27, and Thursday, January 28. Our 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.
