Protecting and promoting the CPA and CPAs' interests.

2024 CPA Assembly Day Materials

Advocating for CPAs' interests is one of the VSCPA's top priorities.

Complexity, uncertainty and regulatory requirements are often roadblocks to CPAs’ success. The VSCPA advocates for Virginia CPAs in legislative and regulatory arenas, protecting their longstanding reputation and providing a unified voice to eliminate unnecessary challenges and barriers.
We cultivate relationships with legislators and regulators, monitor issues, provide input on legislation and other topics, and actively maintain relationships with key agencies.

YOU can take action, too!

The VSCPA offers two ways members and stakeholders can take action on issues important to CPAs: the Virginia Political Action Committee (VSCPA PAC) and VoterVoice

Want to help the VSCPA make an impact on issues impacting the profession, but don't have the time to draft a letter? The VSCPA has got you covered with its grassroots advocacy tool, VoterVoice. You'll find pre-written emails on breaking issues. (Don't worry — you can edit the email.) If we have your address on file, your own state or national legislators will be pre-populated.

The VSCPA Advocacy Team is available any time to help VSCPA members navigate legislative and regulatory issues, assist policymakers and legislators with any CPA-related questions, and more. Contact VSCPA Vice President, Advocacy Emily Walker, CAE, at (804) 612-9428.

Virginia Board of Accountancy

The VSCPA is a separate entity from the Virginia Board of Accountancy (VBOA), which licenses CPAs. Here is a list of VBOA links and contact information.
