MAKE AN IMPACT
Develop leadership skills and network with your peers.
Serving on one of the ASCPA's committees provides you with the opportunity to develop your leadership skills and to network with your peers.
ASCPA Committees connect CPAs through specialty topics across the state through direct networking and education events. See below to view all professional committees available and become involved today.
The Audit Committee is a standing committee of the Alabama Society of CPAs. The committee oversees the organization’s annual financial statement audit and the internal controls. The Audit committee may make recommendations that are received by management and the board of directors. The Audit committee approves the independent auditor.
The Education Committee is dedicated to improving the accounting profession through various initiatives such as supporting ASCPA high school and college pipeline initiatives, and recognizing distinguished educators through the ASCPA Outstanding Accounting Educator Award.
The Alabama CPA PAC is a non-partisan committee comprised of CPAs who uphold the political voice of the CPA profession. By combining financial resources, the PAC is able to leverage its impact for positive results. Formed in 1990, the CPA/PAC pools members contributions and contributes funds to friendly state legislators and candidates who support CPA and business interests and encourages and supports our own CPAs as political candidates.
Responsibilities of the Peer Review Committee include:
We all benefit from CPAs adhering to the highest ethical standards. Your professional organization is a part of the nationwide Joint Ethics Enforcement Program because we believe one of the hallmarks of a quality profession relates to a strong ethics-oriented approach to work. Complaints are either handled by the ASCPA Ethics Committee or referred directly to the AICPA for investigation.
The Tax Committee is responsible for developing and communicating fair and reasonable legislated and administered taxation at the state and local levels. The committee also participates with certain federal tax issues in collaboration with the AICPA. The committee meets annually with the Alabama Department of Revenue (ADOR) to discuss issues and legislation that effects our membership. Members are at times called upon to participate with public hearings of the ADOR. The information obtained during the annual meeting and public hearings is communicated to the membership via the ASCPA website and weekly electronic newsletters. The committee also tries to communicate changes that occur during the year to the membership and work with the ADOR as needed to improve the tax preparation process for CPAs.
