CRITICAL TO EVERY GREAT ADVOCACY INITIATIVE
IS A KEY PERSON PROGRAM.
By building relationships with legislators, NCACPA is able to position its members as the experts that lawmakers should go to when they need input on important state policies. To be successful, the Association must maintain a robust database of key persons to liaise with lawmakers when urgent issues or challenges arise regarding legislation.
What is a Key Person?
A Key Person is a CPA who understands that individuals (not in government roles) can make a huge difference in the governmental policy-making process. Something as small as a letter via snail mail to a legislator is impactful.
At NCACPA, a Key Person’s responsibilities include:
- Providing grassroots input on “hot topics” that arise in government spaces
- Reviewing any background information distributed to you about said topic
- Calling, writing, emailing, or even visiting your legislator regarding the topic
Don’t personally know a lawmaker? That’s ok! NCACPA has the resources and people you need to help guide you through the process.
