Missouri CPAs and the Legislative Process

On January 22 and 23, the MSCPA and many of its members continued a very effective CPA Day tradition in Jefferson City by visiting their elected representatives and hosting a Legislative Appreciation Night for the senators, representatives and the members of their legislative staffs. If you were there, your contribution of time and energy strengthened the constructive relationship we enjoy with our legislators.

If you weren’t there, please consider getting involved with the legislative advocacy activities of the MSCPA in the future months before the 2008 elections. I believe you’ll find it very interesting and rewarding.

In addition to your contributions of time and energy as members of the MSCPA, I invite you to contribute financially to process of supporting current and future candidates for election to the Missouri General Assembly who will be willing to listen to the concerns of CPAs in Missouri and of our clients. If you have contributed to the Missouri CPA Political Action Committee in the past, please continue and encourage other CPAs in your firm and your community to do the same. Your support is much appreciated.

If you haven’t contributed to our PAC in the past, please begin a tradition of contributing. Your support will make it possible for the PAC and its members to:
Strengthen the voice of Missouri CPAs at the Capitol, which ensures the opportunity to effect positive change for our profession in Missouri
Inform legislators about our views before they vote on bills that could impact our profession and/or our clients
help elect candidates who support CPAs and business issues
make our profession more visible at the Capitol.

Contributions (payable to Missouri CPA PAC) can be sent to P.O, Box 419042, St. Louis, MO 63141-9042.

If you have any questions about our PAC, please call me at 314-432-6700
