Educate

  • Fall Fest is here! We cannot wait to see 400+ of our members – and nonmembers, too – in one place! Our All Inclusive Membership model has allowed us to use our resources in a way that is going to provide you with an experience like never before. With fun activities like the SCACPA Swag Store and Entertainment Night, there are a lot of moving parts at our biggest conference ever. Brush up on all of the Fall Fest activities with our Survival Guide.
  • The first session of Team Tax is this Wednesday, November 14, and we’re proud to be bringing you up to date, relevant CPE with speakers from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. The CPE team is working on printing the Tax Guide participants will receive. Because of the nature of the new tax laws, we are offering Team Tax twice from two physical locations (Greenville and Columbia) and once online. 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! Here’s what we’ve got going on this week:
  • 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.

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!
  • We’re excited to have the SCACPA Swag Store at Fall Fest, where you can win free SCACPA merchandise! Earn points before attending by spreading your SCACPA love on social media using the hashtag #SCACPA2018. With prizes ranging from an playing cards to a stuffed animal, there is something for everyone at the SCACPA Swag Store, and earning points is easy! Check out ways to earn here.
    • SCACPA branded sweatshirt blankets, earbuds, golf balls and puppy dogs are up for grabs! Make sure you participate so that you can take a memento home.

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?
  • Read more about our Advocacy efforts on the SCACPA Blog.
  • We take pride in educating the next generation of CPAs on the ins and outs of the profession. We were at the University of South Carolina Bluffton campus last week for Sea Island’s Student Night and we’re headed to Grand Strand’s Student Night at Coastal Carolina University tonight! Students, don’t forget to register for our Fall Fest Student Conference on Friday.
