Standing Committees

A standing committee is made up of members who have been appointed by the board, to whom a matter is referred or is committed for attention, investigation, analysis, or resolution. A standing or permanent committee is intended to continually consider all matters pertaining to a certain subject. These committees meet at regular intervals throughout the year.

general Committees

A general committee is made up of members who have been appointed by the board, to whom a matter is referred, or is committed for attention, investigation, analysis, or resolution. These committees meet regularly. Because they do not exist due to a constitutional mandate, they can be dissolved, should their purpose no longer meet a present need.

A task force is a group of members temporarily formed to carry out a specific project or to solve a specific problem. The task force meets as needed for the duration of their project.

An action team, like a task force, is temporary in nature, but designed to be even shorter in scope and duration. Action teams may or may not have a formal meeting. Members of action teams may be asked to provide work individually and/or electronically. SCACPA staff has the authority to create action teams with the purpose of meeting a need, i.e. Accounting and Auditing Action Team assists staff in planning the A&A Conference, or Social Media Action Team to promote programs and services and create networking among members.

We need your valuable help in building relationships with legislators who are sensitive to the issues affecting CPAs, businesses, and the economy.

Is one of your clients a legislator? Do you attend church or another place of worship with an elected official? Are you a fellow Rotarian or former classmate of someone in Columbia? If so, you can be a great help to the SCACPA and your fellow CPAs by becoming a Legislative Key Person Contact (KPC).

State Key Person Contacts play a vital role in advancing CPA and business interests in the legislative arena. KPCs are part of a well-connected legislative t (eam that includes SCACPA’s Executive Committee, Board of Directors, Legislative & Advocacy Committee, CPA-Political Action Committee, executive director, and professional lobbyists.

A personal connection with a legislator isn’t a requirement for becoming a Key Person Contact, but you should possess the desire to see that the profession’s voice is heard in Columbia.

With a few letters, phones calls, and other contact with legislators from your local voting district, you can significantly impact decisions that affect our profession.

SCACPA provides all the tools you’ll need to be a productive member of the legislative network, including legislative alerts, sample letters, phone scripts, and staff support.

It is our responsibility to let our legislators know where we stand on the issues important to CPAs. If we don’t, who will?

To register as a Key Person Contact, or to get more information, please contact Chris Jenkins at or (803) 791-4181 x 104.

COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITIES

Giving back in South Carolina. Junior Achievement

SCACPA partners with Junior Achievement (JA) to deliver presentations to K-12 students around the state.

Junior Achievement provides all materials and training to volunteers, either live or online. The program is delivered in five 45 minute lessons, usually one a week for five weeks. If desired, volunteers can work with the local teacher to lengthen the lesson time, thereby decreasing the number of days required to complete the program. SCACPA members may also build in a few minutes to the lesson in order to educate students about the CPA profession.

To get started, please contact the JA Representative in your area, and be sure to mention that you are an SCACPA member.

SCACPA would love to hear about your experience. Please send a brief synopsis and photo to .
