As the 123rd South Carolina General Assembly is underway, you can rely on SCACPA for updates and analysis on the issues that affect South Carolina CPAs.

The SCACPA Advocacy Team knows that all your hard work in serving your clients and community means you can be squeezed for time to know the issue. That’s why we want to take a moment to remind you of all the ways you can follow the new legislative session at the State House that affects how South Carolina CPAs do business.

First and foremost, we always post our breaking news updates on social media, so be sure you follow us on:

If you missed an update on social media, you can always find our stories and latest news posted on the SCACPA.org Blog at  https://www.scacpa.org/scacpa_blog/.

We also deliver these stories direct to your inbox first thing every Thursday morning with the Current Assets e-newsletter.

Or call the SCACPA staff at 803.791.4181 to make sure we have your correct email address on file.

The weekly “View from the Dome” update reviews noteworthy actions at the State House, courtesy of our lobbying partners at Copper Dome Strategies LLC, and it appears on the SCACPA Blog every Friday afternoon.

For an example of the to-do list for the SCACPA Governmental Affairs Committee, check out this article about four key bills we are monitoring at the start of this session:

This is in addition to our annual drive for Conformity to the Federal tax code and updates regarding the progress of the Senate Tax Reform Subcommittee.

And our quarterly South Carolina CPA Report magazine will give you the big picture on our advocacy efforts when it’s published and delivered to your home or office in March, June, September and December.

Oh, and one more thing: SCACPA is conducting a survey through January about how our members interact with elected officials to help us define and strengthen our advocacy network. If you have yet to complete the survey, I ask you to please click on this link and spend a few quick minutes on this essential step as we enter public policy discussions.

If you have questions or comments about legislative matters or SCACPA’s Governmental Affairs Committee, contact SCACPA CEO Chris Jenkins at cjenkins@scacpa.org.

Thank you for your support of SCACPA, and thank you for keeping informed on the efforts of the SCACPA Advocacy team. We continue to be the only organization that protects and promotes the CPA credential in South Carolina, and it is our privilege to do this on your behalf.
