Membership dues provide the highest quality benefits and services possible, including but not limited to:
- Advocacy: OSCPA members are seen as go-to experts by legislators. In fact, members (such as those on the OSCPA Taxation and Legislative Policy Strategic Committees) put in hours of work reviewing bills and testifying in Salem. The OSCPA even provides an Oregon Legislators' Tax Guide to state legislators to help them navigate filing their own taxes. These volunteer efforts are a great benefit to the citizens of Oregon. Here's more on the OSCPA's advocacy efforts.
