“SCACPA is the only organization that looks out for the interests of CPAs and the accounting profession in South Carolina.”

SCACPA works diligently to support legislation that benefits the profession, the business community, and the public, while fighting unfair legislation that produces roadblocks to successful practices and client service. SCACPA’s voice resonates at the State House, solidifying a position of influence with legislators.

As SCACPA grows, our voice becomes stronger. Legislators understand the power in numbers, and the more members we represent, the better we can serve the profession. We encourage all SCACPA members to offer their expertise as CPAs in the course of efforts at the State House. Members offer well-researched and objective knowledge in budgetary issues, economic forecasting, and audit controls.

To further our reach and build our effectiveness, the new Legislator Connections Community facilitates connections with legislators. These relationships are invaluable for helping representatives understand the impact of legislation on the profession and the business community. Even if you have never been active in the legislative arena, the LCC will help you gain confidence and support you as you develop connections. Find out more.

Want to Donate to the PAC?

The South Carolina CPA-Political Action Committee enables members of the CPA profession to support legislators who share their views.

It does this through making contributions to key leaders and members of the legislature.

The CPA-Political Action Committee is a non-partisan committee comprised of CPAs who oversee the investment of financial contributions from SCACPA members in state political leadership (state legislators and candidates for state office) who support CPAs and business interests.

SCACPA has one of the strongest grassroots networks in South Carolina, and the CPA-PAC is an important part of that effort. The profession has celebrated a long list of legislative victories, but none of those successes are possible without legislators who listen to and support our position.

With your donation to the CPA-PAC, we are able to:

  • Educate legislators about matters that are important to the profession

  • Realize greater legislative effectiveness

  • Send a clear, consistent message

  • Keep the SCACPA membership fully informed
