Advocating for CPAs

ISCPA plays a key role in protecting the interests of CPAs throughout Idaho

ISCPA’s advocacy efforts address policy issues in Idaho and Washington D.C., as well as regulatory requirements from the Idaho Board of Public Accountancy. ISCPA members—and all members of our profession—benefit from ISCPA’s efforts in seeking the most favorable laws and rules in place for the success of CPAs across all sectors.
