Normally, May is the time where the NCCPAP (National Conference of CPA Practitioners) Board of Directors, Tax Committee, and other members go to Washington, D.C. Their purpose is to meet with members of Congress, the IRS, U.S. Department of the Treasury, and others who create the laws, and the interpretation of those law, that affect taxpayers. It is a highlight of the year, involving a twelve-month-long process to set an agenda, select those government representatives to visit, match NCCPAP members with them, and confirm in-person meetings. This year, NCCPAP will organize a small group of its members and likely visit Capitol Hill in the fall. In the meantime, this video showcases the importance of this event, what has been accomplished over the years, and the impact it has on members—and the CPA profession, in general.

This is not the only major endeavor for NCCPAP this year. NCCPAP has also been hard at work creating information and education courses ‘virtually’ for its members and prospective members—many of which are free of charge or offered at a minimal fee. In response, hundreds of CPAs across the country are showing up to learn as much as possible. In no way, has this been a slow time for CPAs, nor for NCCPAP. At a time where many of its members are working remotely, adjusting to video conferencing with clients, and putting in extra hours, NCCPAP has stepped up its game and its influence. For every Bill under consideration, NCCPAP has officially stated its opinion, written letters to the originators of the Bill, and spoken with members of the press frequently. Now is the time to get more involved and leverage your NCCPAP community.
For prospective members, become a part of something larger than yourself or your CPA practice; become part of a community of like-minded professionals.
