Nov. 19-23

Educate

  • And just like that, our biggest event ever has come and gone. At Fall Fest, we got to see 400+ of our members – and nonmembers, too – in one place. We hope this experience was as memorable for you as it was for us!
  • The second session of Team Tax is next month, and we’re proud to be bringing you up to date, relevant CPE with speakers from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Read more about Team Tax, our panelists and the dates and locations here.
  • We are gearing up for busy season here in the office! From now until the end of the year, the SCACPA Staff will be travelling regularly all throughout the state to bring CPE to you. We are coming to a city near you, so go ahead and check out we’re offering. Don’t forget to say hi when you see us! We are taking a break from CPE for Thanksgiving this week, but we will be back next week with a full slate of CPE!
  • Don’t forget to complete your Ethics requirements before the end of the reporting period (December 31, 2018). We are offering Ethics multiple times between now and the end of the year – check out the courses here.
    • Tip: Our course, Professional Conduct for South Carolina CPAs, satisfies the 2-hour South Carolina specific code required by the Board of Accountancy.
    • Tip #2: If you find that you have an odd number of Ethics hours and need additional hours to complete these requirements, check out Surgent’s Ethics courses. Don’t forget that you can use your Bank hours towards Surgent’s On-Demand Self-Study courses!

Communications

  • The Communications and Membership teams are shifting focus from retention to recruitment. With All Inclusive Membership, we know CPAs across the state are excited at the potential of membership with the only organization in South Carolina that protects the profession. Join SCACPA today!

Advocate

  • SCACPA is the only organization in the state the protects and promotes the CPA profession. With tax season quickly approaching, we’re going to be kicking off a campaign to spread awareness about the differences between an accountant and a CPA, and why choosing a CPA is a smart long-term financial decision. We know choosing a CPA is the right decision, don’t you?
