The NJCPA plays a critical role protecting the CPA profession in the New Jersey Legislature. No group has more impact on your ability to practice your profession than the Governor and the members of the Legislature. One of the most powerful methods we use to influence this group is through direct contacts made by CPAs who have existing relationships with a lawmaker(s). If you have a relationship with any New Jersey lawmaker, please contact Jeff Kaszerman at 973-226-4494 x210 or jkaszerman@njcpa.org.
