What is the goal of LCPA's PAC?
PAC ensures the CPA community has a voice in state government, particularly on issues affecting the profession and Louisiana’s economic vitality.
What is the function of our PAC?
PAC supports political candidates who value the CPA profession and ask for input on legislative and regulatory issues.
Why is PAC important?
The more CPA-friendly political candidates elected into office, the more the CPA profession and business community will thrive in Louisiana. Additionally, LCPA
has long-standing relationships with many legislators and other government officials, and PAC helps us keep the attention of these individuals and enhances our reputation as experts who provide objective, nonpartisan advice.
Why should I contribute to PAC?
The decisions made by our state government affect you — as a CPA, a business owner, a taxpayer, and an LCPA member. PAC is a way for you and your profession to have a voice. Your investment helps elect CPA-friendly candidates and helps LCPA build alliances with elected officials who directly influence legislation.
Do my LCPA dues pay for PAC?
No. By law, LCPA cannot use your membership dues as contributions to political candidates. CPAs must make all political contributions personally and voluntarily.
I’m a member of AICPA and already contribute to
its PAC. Isn’t LCPA's PAC a duplication of effort?
No. The AICPA’s PAC supports federal legislators and issues, not state-level. LCPA's PAC only supports state officials and issues.
What if I don’t want my money to support a
PAC is nonpartisan in its selection of candidates to support. Party label is not considered. The record, agenda, and quality of each candidate determine who receives our support.
Who’s in charge of LCPA's PAC?
You! Our PAC is a member-managed, member-driven, and member-focused political action committee. We welcome the insights and viewpoints of our members,
especially with respect to candidates and issues.
