Engage, Connect, Succeed

When you raise your hand and deepen your engagement within the profession, everyone wins! When you contribute your unique talents, the Association and the profession become more vibrant and diverse! 

SCACPA offers several avenues of involvement, and we want to help you find the right fit. Volunteer opportunities are divided into three basic categories:

  • Strategic Leadership
  • Local Leadership
  • Interest-based Leadership

Strategic Leadership includes service on the SCACPA Board of Directors. Local Leadership includes serving the profession at the Chapter level to engage members within your own community. Interest-based Leadership features the opportunities to grow and participate according to your passions.

Complete the appropriate Volunteer Interest or Nomination Form(s), and our team will collaborate with you to find the best fit for your talents.

Chapter Leadership positions are for one year, and Board nominees will be considered for a three-year term, all beginning July 1, 2022. Nomination submissions are due May 1, 2022. Commitments for Chapter Leaders include meeting locally four times a year for Chapter business, planning social events and meeting once a year with the SCACPA Board. Chapter Leaders are sometimes asked to create and manage action teams as well as committees of local volunteers. Find out more about what’s going on in our eight statewide Chapters at www.scacpa.org/chapters. It includes contact information for current officers, so feel free to reach out and start a conversation in your area.
