Legislative Efforts

One of the main roles of SCACPA is to be the greatest
advocate for the accounting profession in the state.

With a strong presence in Columbia and through the grassroots efforts of our members, SCACPA has a successful track record in the State Capitol.

We have worked hard to support positive legislation that benefits the profession, the business community and the public at large, while fighting unfair legislation that would hinder the ability of CPAs to practice their profession and effectively serve the clients and businesses they work for.

Help make our messages even stronger by getting involved in SCACPA’s legislative efforts. As a CPA actively engaged in providing professional services to the public, business clients or your employer, you have a finger on the pulse of how well (or not) regulations and laws are working. We depend on your insight and opinions to help drive our involvement. Send us your comments, ideas or challenges, and let us know which issues are most important to you. Contact
