Your Passion, Your Involvement, Everyone’s Success

Is it possible to volunteer too often? That’s like saying you could ever know too many people or have too many friends. Fortunately, SCACPA offers a wealth of volunteering opportunities: from educating youth on financial literacy to hands-on service projects. YOU can make an impact for the better.

New members rank networking as the No. 1 expectation of membership. Volunteering also gives individuals a comfortable environment to learn and grow and expand their leadership skills in a safe environment.

SCACPA volunteer opportunities are streamlined and flexible, allowing you to choose how and when you contribute. When we schedule meetings, you have the option of attending in-person or online. The work completed is impactful and relevant to your local community of South Carolina CPAs.
