TXCPA Professional Ethics Committee

The Role of the Professional Ethics Committee

Purpose - The committee's primary goal is that each member of TXCPA acts ethically.  The primary objective in reaching this goal is ensuring that Society members abide by the current TXCPA Code of Professional Ethics (see the last pages of TXCPA Bylaws). 

The TXCPA Code of Professional Ethics consists of both the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct and the TSBPA Rules of Professional Conduct.  The activities of the committee are focused on achieving this objective.
