Twenty members serve on the current Board of Directors cabinet.

The KSCPA provides its members representation at the Kansas Statehouse and on the Council of the American Institute of CPAs, and builds relationships with advocates at the IRS and Kansas Department of Revenue. The organization also sponsors young professional events and professional development programs to help members meet requirements for maintaining a permit for practice in Kansas, among other services.
