GROW
So far this month, we have added 10 new members to the organization. SCACPA will continue to focus on keeping the local talent of the accounting community in the state.

COMMUNICATE
SCACPA has been working hard to update our new website that will be launching soon. The entire communications staff has been in website training. We have also been dividing up responsibilities for the website including, moving old content over and updating it, creating new pages, images and navigation set up. As we move along we are also testing different features and forms of our website to ensure their accuracy.

The CPA Report has officially been mailed out! We have had more calls from members since it’s mailing, and we look forward to continuing to help our members with any questions they may have.

EDUCATE
