Tax Legislation Committee
This group meets to make recommendations to the Executive Committee regarding legislative activities. Members of this committee may meet with legislators to help them understand the effects of legislation on businesses and individuals.
Speak to high school or college students about choosing accounting as a career. Educate students about the opportunities available as a CPA. Join us at one of our Road to the CPA events.
Many Arizona nonprofits are looking for CPAs to be a part of their board. We will inform you when we receive requests from not-for-profits and you can choose which opportunity is best for you. Notifications are posted in the Volunteer Opportunities Community on Connect.
The ASCPA receives requests from the media to talk to CPAs about a variety of topics. It is a great way to help the public and market your firm or business. Sign up with us so that we may call you when we get a request that fits your expertise.
Tax Season Events
The ASCPA is involved in April 15 tax events each year and needs CPAs to volunteer. Events could include TV station call-in programs, radio shows and other events.
The AZ CPA magazine and the ASCPA Blog are great sources of information. If you have something you want to share, contribute by writing for the AZ CPA magazine, Monthly Update (our enewsletter) or blog.
Financial Literacy Events
CPA volunteers assist the public in learning about financial literacy through activities with youth and other organizations.
Gain more exposure for your organization by becoming a speaker. We receive requests for speakers throughout the year for local and national organizations. If you are interested in speaking at chapter meetings, conferences or other organizations beyond the CPA community, contact us.
