More than 200 CPAs from across the Peach State are meeting state lawmakers on Thursday for the 2015 CPA Day at the Gold Dome, Georgia’s state capitol building in Atlanta.

On this day, individual CPAs, members of CPA firms and accounting students will gather for the fourth annual CPA Day. Hosted by the Georgia Society of CPAs, the event gives CPAs the opportunity to share their perspectives on important issues facing the CPA profession with Georgia's legislators.

No matter what area of the accounting profession each CPA member has chosen, or what stage of their career they may be in, CPA Day places all accounting professionals in a position to offer their elected officials valuable input and expertise on the issues that they face. The last time the event was held, it had high attendance, attracting more than 150 participants. Organizers hope this year’s CPA Day at the Gold Dome surpasses prior attendance records.

“The Georgia Society of CPAs launched CPA Day at the Gold Dome because CPAs offer a unique and intelligent perspective, and events like this make a very real connection between the profession and Georgia's legislators,” GSCPA CEO Boyd Search in a statement. “GSCPA members take seriously the issues that impact the CPA profession, the clients and employers they serve and the state of Georgia at large.”

The GSCPA hopes the event will also continue to build awareness of the CPA profession.
