SCACPA understands the importance of giving back to the community that gives so much to the Association. We donated to the Lexington Nationals Dixie Youth baseball team to help aid in travel expenses after the team won the Division 1 AA Coach Pitch State Tournament! The team travels to play in the World Series next week in Louisiana. Congratulations and good luck, guys!
The second quarter edition of the 2019 CPA Report is headed to the printer this week! Look for it in your mailbox before the end of the month.
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.
Did you let paying your SCACPA dues by June 30 slip by you? No worries – renew between now and August 1 and avoid a late fee.
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!
We are excited to host high school teachers from around the region at the AICPA’s APBP: Advanced Accounting Training here in the SCACPA office this week! We’re dedicated to growing the student pipeline and providing teachers with the tools they need to communicate the need for accounting professionals and encourage students to explore the profession.
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?
