Our passion for CPAs is most evident in our advocacy. As a member of KyCPA you gain close access to lawmakers that impact the profession through an aggressive government affairs division that includes staff and contract lobbyists, a political action committee (PAC) and a key contact program. KyCPA members are invited each year to attend CPA Day at the Capitol.
During the legislative session, members receive weekly legislative updates from Frankfort. KyCPA advocates reviewed bills, meets with legislators and joins forces with other business organizations to ensure your interests are represented.
Want to make more of a difference? With the KyCPA-PAC, your donations help elect business-minded legislators who support our position on issues significant to the CPA profession. By pooling our resources, together we can ensure the accounting profession continues to have a strong presence in Kentucky's legislative and regulatory activities.
Part of our success in Frankfort comes from our key contact program. If you have a relationship with a state or federal lawmaker, you can help us advocate further as a key contact. Nothing influences a legislator more than hearing from a friend or constituent. Your assistance is crucial to personalizing and localizing the political impact of state and federal legislation.

Whether you want to spend more time with your family, explore Kentucky industry, expand your social circle or just save some money, the Society has something for you.
You will probably hear about things like “Industry Insider”, “Family Fun Day” or "Women's Networking Event" which are free member events created to help our CPAs meet their goals. In a recent survey, 49 percent of our members surveyed said that work/life balance was a critical professional challenge. Family Fun Day is the perfect solution. Grab your kids and enjoy a day on KyCPA including food, drinks and entertainment. Check out these photos from our last Family Fun Day.
Need some adult time or want to network? Industry Insider provides an in-depth look at some incredible businesses across the state such as Bluegrass Stockyards in Lexington and UPS in Louisville.
Another opportunity to relax, learn and get to know each other is at a Women's Networking Event. These events include a small reception with drinks and appetizers. The best part is...it’s totally free.
The more you get involved with KyCPA, the more you should think about volunteering. We have more than 20 committees that help plan conferences and events in their subject area year-round. No matter what you are interested in, one of our committees will fit your passion in and out of the profession.
You may also volunteer by being part of a discussion panel or helping with mock interviews at College Leadership Institute. Consider writing an article for the Kentucky CPA Journal or an e-newsletter article. You may share your expertise by being a subject matter expert for a CPE course.
