IMPORTANT DUES REMINDER: SCACPA members paid a dues renewal rate of $700 in 2018 because every local Chapter contributed a $99 discount as a one-time only introductory rate for the All-Inclusive Membership package. Having heard the feedback of members like you, the All-Inclusive dues have given our members more options, better options and better content. We look forward to giving you this level of service and more moving forward at the $799 annual membership price.
The Communications and Membership departments are working on updating website information and creating renewal packets as we approach the end of our Membership year (June 30, 2019). We are going to continue to communicate the benefits of All Inclusive Membership and how the model has allowed for greater flexibility and increased benefits for members.
SCACPA Content Products are in the works! In addition to standard tips and tricks, our content guide for interviewing will feature quotes from members about what they specifically look for in candidates. We’re also putting together information on how to market your CPA firm. Stay tuned!

SCACPA is the only organization in the state the protects and promotes the CPA profession. Now that tax season has officially begun, we’re going to be promoting our #WhyCPA 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?
