Week Dec. 17-21

PLAN AHEAD: The SCACPA Office will be closed the week of Dec. 24-28, Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. Staff will be checking email throughout the week.

Educate

  • We are officially closing out our busy season this week as we head into the holiday season and new year. We still have a few opportunities for you to squeeze in some last minute hours – including portions of our Team Tax course! Staff will be checking email and answering phones on Rebroadcast dates if you experience any difficulties or have questions.
  • Don’t forget to complete your Ethics requirements before the end of the reporting period (December 31, 2018). We are offering Ethics multiple times between now and the end of the year – check out the courses here.
    • Tip: Our course, Professional Conduct for South Carolina CPAs, satisfies the 2-hour South Carolina specific code required by the Board of Accountancy.
    • Tip #2: If you find you have an odd number of Ethics hours and need additional hours to complete these requirements, check out Surgent’s Ethics courses. You can use your CPE Bank hours toward Surgent’s On-Demand Self-Study courses at www.scacpa.org/ondemand.
  • The finishing touches are being made to the 2019-2020 CPE schedule this week. We’re thrilled to continue to bring you new, exciting and relevant content that fits your interests and is flexible to your schedule. The Committee of 16 is always open to topic and speaker suggestions – let us know what you want to see on the schedule by emailing cpe@scacpa.org.

Communications

  • The Communications and Membership teams are shifting focus from retention to recruitment. With All Inclusive Membership, we know CPAs across the state are excited at the potential of membership with the only organization in South Carolina that protects the profession. Join SCACPA today!
  • The final 2018 edition of the CPA Report will be in your mailbox before the holidays. Need to update your address to receive SCACPA mail? Send us your updated information to communications@scacpa.org.
  • Be on the lookout for the RAP Index Survey in early January! We’re looking for members to help with the CPA-PAC during the legislative session. If you are interested in participating or would like more information, email communications@scacpa.org.

Advocate

  • SCACPA is the only organization in the state the protects and promotes the CPA profession. With tax season quickly approaching, we’re going to be kicking off a 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?
  • Read more about our Advocacy efforts on the SCACPA Blog.
  • Students, the AICPA Minority Scholarship is open for submissions! Be on the lookout for us to open SCACPA Scholarship submissions around the first of the year.
  • The Central Chapter is hosting a Meet Your Legislators event next month. This is your chance to join SCACPA’s conversation on changes that impact the tax year in a relaxed environment, and we want to see you there! Read more and register here.
