Showing our professional strength to our legislators

For our legislative efforts to succeed, we need the voice and participation of our members. Our biggest opportunity for member involvement in legislative advocacy is our annual CPA Day in Annapolis during Maryland’s legislative session.

On CPA Day, we gather to assemble a policy agenda and then meet face-to-face with our delegates and senators to discuss the issues that impact our profession.

MACPA Members can attend CPA Day for free and participants are eligible to receive 2 CPE credits.
