Diverse topics

No one knows South Carolina CPAs better than we do. With Fall Fest, SCACPA is bringing you the experience – in and outside of the classroom – you’ve come to expect from your Association. We listened to your feedback and we have worked hard to craft five engaging, relevant tracks of learning.

Silent Auction

We’ve collected a large assortment of premier items for you to win at the Fall Fest’s Silent Auction. From hotel packages, luxury accessories and everything in between – bid early, bid often and win big by making a difference in South Carolina through the SCACPA Educational Foundation and PAC. The holidays are right around the corner so start your shopping now and remember, the best gift is the gift of giving!

Entertainment Night

Membership with SCACPA is more than just CPE. We offer more than handbooks, packets and PowerPoints. We are a community built around providing you with professional connections and lifelong friendships. Fall Fest’s Entertainment Night is bringing South Carolina CPAs closer together through games, music, and camaraderie.

The conference was great! Can’t wait to see what is in store at the Fall conference! Enjoyed the social event, annual meeting during lunch, prizes and giveaways, and the vendor selection was great too! Very helpful staff!

Really great event. Lots of class choices and speakers with experience and knowledge about their topics.

As Chris Jenkins said it was a very family friendly event. Topics were relevant, speakers great (especially those who had to fill in at the last minute). Vendors doing exhibits were great too.
