As a SCACPA member, you know all the benefits of the Association. From our work in advocacy, communication, connection, education and growth of the profession, we help CPAs thrive. But perhaps you have a colleague, friend or family member who did not consider SCACPA as being a fit for what they do.

How can you persuade a fellow CPA to join SCACPA? We have a few ideas, and it starts with talking about our success stories.

Here are examples of what SCACPA has been accomplishing since our switch to All-Inclusive Membership. We encourage you to start with these points and tell the story of how they helped you.

Year after year, SCACPA promises to:

  • Work with legislators and regulators on tax conformity, tax reform and occupational licensing. We are the only organization looking out for the CPA profession in South Carolina
  • Work with our eight local chapters around the state to coordinate giving campaigns to help support your communities.
  • Provide timely information and communications about professional issues and disaster recovery
  • Saved members thousands of dollars in CPE expenses while providing just-in-time education on breaking news topics

  • Coordinate high school, university and local community events to inform students of the value of the CPA credential
  • Host social events enabling CPAs to enhance their professional network with their peers
  • Maintain the #WhyCPA public relations campaign to promote the value of CPAs to the local business community
