How much can I save?

As a SCACPA member, you gain an extension of your team. With SCACPA in your corner, you gain a team of advocacy professionals, a marketing engine, recruitment specialists, unlimited access to education, and more.

All told, SCACPA’s savings come out to thousands more than what you would spend on each of these line items individually. A dedicated lobbyist alone would cost a firm $75,000, and that doesn’t account for the strength of the 4,000 voices behind it!

Advocacy-Protecting the Profession

SCACPA is the only organization looking out for the CPA profession in South Carolina. Who better than your association to protect and promote the CPA Profession? This year we’ve expanded our advocacy efforts.

Along with federal tax conformity, we are actively monitoring state tax reform, sales tax on tax preparation services, occupational licensing reform, two separate audit rotation bills, and new financial literacy programs.

With the help of our Chapters we’ve created more personal interaction with legislators via legislative social events, and we’ve also enhanced our relationship tracking with updated software.

When hot button issues arise, or you need information quickly, you can be assured that SCACPA has you covered. At the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, SCACPA lobbied to have CPAs declared as essential businesses so members could continue to work and serve clients all over South Carolina.

In 2019, SCACPA started the #WhyCPA campaign to promote the value of CPAs to local business owners and individuals. So far, the campaign received more than 20,000 impressions, and the campaign will continue to thrive.

A Brighter Future

SCACPA’s support of the future of the profession is unwavering. SCACPA strives to engage the best and brightest professionals to ensure the CPA remains the gold standard among financial professionals.

Everyone wins when professionals and students get together. At the 2021 Fall Fest, a select group of attendees had the opportunity to eat lunch and directly access future professionals.

Members’ support of the Educational Fund fuels SCACPA’s Scholarship Program. Last year, SCACPA awarded more than $90,000, and we are on track to increase that number this year.

Unlimited Education

The Association has assembled an Education Committee whose mission is to carefully craft an education schedule that delivers maximum value at minimum cost.

You have more control over the professional education that is vital to your ongoing success without worrying about how much it will cost. SCACPA members have unlimited access to education!

We are the only organization that crafts localized, state-specific education products, and our mission is to advocate for what is right. We offer options that fit your schedule and resources in our live classes and online offerings.

Twice a year, SCACPA puts on the best show in the state! The Fall Fest and Spring Splash Accounting Conferences bring CPAs from all facets of accounting to one place to connect, learn, and grow. The events celebrate the profession, connect members with each other and with SCACPA’s partners, and provide top-notch education.

Livestream education is all about ease, convenience, and accessibility – a new way of learning that puts you in control of your education. With an easy-to-use Classroom, you can learn about anything and everything. No desktop? No problem. You can watch our Livestreams from your smartphone or tablet. Because education is unlimited, you can participate in learning that helps you grow as a professional outside of your core competencies.

Self-Study On-Demand education is ideal for those niche topics that you just can’t seem to find anywhere else. Perfect for those in Business and Industry, Self-Study On-Demand puts you in complete control of your education – everything from the course topics to the length of time it takes to complete the course. Learning at your own pace allows you to delve deep into complex material. South Carolina CPAs are allowed to report up to 20 hours of self study CPE every year.
