  • Reviews and evaluates existing laws, rules and regulations for appropriateness in the practice of public accounting.
  • Proactively recommend amendments and change to existing legislation and regulations.
  • Reviews and evaluates proposed legislation, rules and regulations for the effect on the practice of public accounting.
  • Recommends to the Board positions to be taken related to current and proposed legislation, rules and regulations.
  • Contacts Legislators and Regulators to put forth the position of the Society on matters affecting the profession.
