Committees

Serving on an FICPA committee is an excellent way for you to network with your peers from around the state, while enabling you to play an influential role in shaping the future of your profession.  From the 31 FICPA committees, you will find a wide array of opportunities that also includes other kinds of networking, community outreach, conference-planning, professional development, and information dissemination.

Committee membership is open to voting members; non-resident members; non-CPA accounting educator members; associate members; retired members; and lifetime members of the FICPA in good standing.  Most committees usually plan and implement at least one project or program per year and many offer the opportunity to participate in subcommittees to work on specific areas of interest within the committee structure.  Committees communicate through one or more meetings and/or conference calls in which members are expected to participate. In addition, Committees may share resources and conduct business thought FICPA Connect.

When to Sign Up

At the being of each calendar year, a Volunteer Request Guide is sent to all members and made available on the FICPA website.  Volunteer Request forms are accepted between February and mid-April every year, in which the member can select their top three choices from any combination of committees or sections. Use the directory on this page to find out more about each active committee now.  You can also go to our Chapters pages for more information.

Appointments are finalized in early May and are confirmed in writing to each member. Committee appointment is for one year:  July through June. Committee re-appointment is not automatic. You must reapply to serve each year.

Selection Process

Many factors are considered for committee selection, including individual expertise; previous service; diversity and extent of FICPA-member participation; experience level; geographic location; and firm/company dynamics.
All committee membership is evaluated by the executive committee director coordinator; current committee chair and vice chair; and FICPA staff.  Appointment recommendations are made considering the stated criteria. The FICPA chair makes final committee appointments, as well as committee chair and vice chair assignments.
