Why should I get involved in CPA-PAC?
To ensure that the accounting profession continues to have a strong presence in Texas’ legislative and regulatory activities, as many individuals as possible must be involved in the political process. A key factor in determining the strength of the accounting profession in Texas’ political arena is the number of CPAs who get involved with the CPA-PAC.
Just as other professions have recognized the critical importance of political action committees, CPAs also have too much at stake to commit anything less than 100 percent to our political efforts.
The efficacy of the CPA-PAC is directly proportional to how many CPAs are involved: the greater the numbers, the more influence the profession will have. A donation from a PAC with 27,000 members carries much more weight than an identical donation from a 10,000-member PAC, or even an identical donation from an individual. This dynamic goes to the very heart of grassroots political advocacy.
CPAs are without question among the busiest of all business professionals, and many lack the time to devote to protecting the professions interests in the legislature. Making regular donations to the CPA-PAC, however, is the fastest, easiest and most efficient way to contribute to those critical regulatory and legislative efforts.
No CPA in Texas can afford not to give to the CPA-PAC.
