Connect at the Local Level

Chapters play a vital role in building the value proposition of the Association. They facilitate relationships development with area legislators, regulators and other professionals.

As a member of SCACPA, you belong to one of eight regional chapters. Your membership includes chapter membership–no additional fees required! Leverage this powerful networking tool to build your local connections and discover new friends and contacts.

Chapters routinely host events, all planned and supported by volunteers – your peers! From happy hours to student networking nights, Chapters facilitate positive local-level connections!

Every chapter is responsible to the Association’s Board of Directors and is included in the Association’s annual financial audit.

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 Katharine Keller.

Chapters are an integral part of SCACPA. Each regional chapter is an affiliate of the association and exists to facilitate networking and educational opportunities tailored for its members.

Upcoming Chapter Events

Community involvement is fruitful for the soul and contributes to the greater good. Chapter socials provide an accessible way to plug into your local physical community, as well as the professional community. You can never know too many people, have too many friends, or volunteer too often.

Looking to expand your relationships and connect virtually? Head to SCACPA Connect and engage with other like-minded professionals both in your chapter and from around the state!
