Abby Dupree

Abby Dupree, MP at Carroll and Company of Tallahassee, Fla., is the new chair of the Florida Institute of CPAs (FICPA) for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.

“Abby is committed to serving the diverse needs of our more than 19,000 members,” says Deborah L. Curry, president/CEO of FICPA. “We’re fortunate to have her at the helm as we work to ensure the FICPA continues offering value to our members and navigates the changes facing our profession.”

Dupree has stated that her major goals are to remain relevant to CPAs at all stages of their careers, especially younger generations, and to help move the organization forward in an increasingly technology-focused profession. “The new CPA is an agile business advisor, assuring business transparency and trust in our high-tech environment,” she said in a recent interview for FICPA’s Florida CPA Today magazine.

“For the FICPA board to recognize that they don’t have all the answers but to continually seek them is a powerful way to move the profession and our organization forward. We have to stay ahead of the curve,” she says.
