CPA Month of Service is one of the most active times on the SCACPA calendar. Your neighbors across the state get to see how CPAs pool their time and talents to make South Carolina a better place to live.
Our Chapters and firms will be organizing some incredible service projects. We want to hear about your projects so we can recognize your service on social media.
Let’s join together as a generous community of leaders who support our state.
Our #WhyCPA campaign tells the public why CPAs are trusted members of the community. CPA Month of Service is what proves it.
