In an ever-changing landscape, SCACPA is working harder than ever to find out how we can help your business find success. But it starts with having a conversation to learn what you need.  

In your roles in your community as an employee, voter and volunteer, your voice is influential. We’d like to know about the issues important to you. 

We are offering three surveys that aim to advance our advocacy and help us learn what you do. More importantly, you can also schedule visits to talk with a SCACPA executive so we can know your concerns first-hand. 

SCACPA LEADERS WANT TO HEAR YOUR CHALLENGES 

In an effort to better learn how you work and understand how we can help you, the SCACPA Executive Team wants members of the Association to know that we want to hear your stories. 

Feel free to contact SCACPA CEO Chris Jenkins (cjenkins@scacpa.org and 803.791.4181 ext. 404) or VP of Membership & Communication Lisa McGee (lmgee@scacpa.org and 803.791.4181 ext. 406), and they can schedule a time to visit your office for a discussion.  

SCACPA is the only organization that advocates for South Carolina CPAs, and we want to identify ways to tailor our programs to get results for you. SCACPA thanks all who assist in making our Association stronger. 

Thank you for your time and participation in our advocacy efforts, and thank you for supporting SCACPA. 

SCACPA’s RAP INDEX SURVEY 

Earlier this year, SCACPA launched an important survey to help us grow the SCACPA Key Person program and advance our position on issues that impact South Carolina CPAs.  

Thousands of members from across the state participated in the RAP Index Survey, but we would still like to hear from more of you. That’s why on Tuesday, April 30, those who have yet to complete the survey will receive an email that guides them to the link where the online survey can be completed. The survey will take very little of your time, but your participation will make a tremendous difference. 

You will also help us identify the stakeholders within your network and the level of advocacy you are willing to undertake. There are no right or wrong answers, we simply ask for your honest feedback.  

FIRM TOP ISSUES SURVEY 

The PCPS Top Issues Survey asks practitioners about critical issues facing their firms. This survey is completed every other year and is similar to the National MAP Survey, which collects practice management benchmarking metrics 

The insights gathered will set the focus for resources developed by the Private Companies Practice Section and the AICPA to help firms and the profession be more successful. This survey takes no more than 10 minutes to complete and is open through May 17. 

Take advantage of this important opportunity to weigh in on what challenges are top of mind. The survey can be found at https://bit.ly/2Dlb9pO 

WORK EXPERIENCES OF ACCOUNTING PROFESSIONALS SURVEY 

The first-ever survey for Work Experiences of Accounting Professionals will be emailed the first week in May. Your thoughtful and honest responses will help us identify the critical career roadblocks so that leaders in the profession can devise methods to overcome them.  

The questions on this 15-minute survey are divided into five sections: DemographicsCPA Exam barriersMentoringExperiences in the work place, and Skills and success factors 

Your answers will be anonymous and confidential. The data collected will be used for academic research. The anonymized and aggregated results will be shared with State CPA Associations and the AICPA.
