Thank You for being Involved!

Chapters play a vital role in the continuing recruitment of new members to the association. They also act as vehicles for developing relationships with area legislators, regulators, and other professionals. Every chapter is responsible to the association’s Board of Directors, and is included in the association’s annual financial audit.

As a member of SCACPA, you are invited to join one of our eight regional chapters. You are eligible to join the chapter in which you live or work, but you may only be a member of one chapter at a time.

If you are already a member of SCACPA and would like to join your local chapter, or for additional information regarding chapter events and benefits, please contact Chris Jenkins.
