One of the reasons TSCPA’s Governmental Affairs efforts are so successful is because we work year-round to establish and maintain relationships with legislators and candidates. That can mean everything from a casual phone call to the district or campaign office, to delivering CPA-PAC donations, to attending campaign events and fundraisers.
For example: Bette Williams, a Key Person and CPA-PAC Gold Key participant, recently attended an event for Lt. Governor David Dewhurst. She even had her photo taken with him.
These kinds of personal contacts make all the difference when we’re under the gun during legislative session, laying the groundwork for solid working relationships.
