AICPA/State Society Key Person Program
Through the Key Person program, MECPA members connect with Maine’s federal legislators that have jurisdiction over bills that affect the accounting profession. Key Persons cultivate relationships with these individuals providing education and technical expertise on tax, accounting, and financial legislation.
Key Persons may also be called upon to connect with state legislators to advocate on behalf of bills of import to the profession.
The MECPA provides guidance and talking points about issues facing the profession to help Key Persons fulfill their roles most effectively.
