From everyone at SCACPA, happy belated July 4th, and happy new membership year! We’re excited to start off the 2019-2020 year with you at the first CPE event of the new year in Charleston this Friday – but first, it’s time for SCACPA Happenings!


  • Over half of existing members have renewed their commitment to SCACPA. We’re thrilled to continue to serve you under the All Inclusive Membership model in the coming year. See what all you helped us accomplish last year in our year in review.
    • 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!
  • The SCACPA Communications Department earned four “Best in the Business” awards for its communications efforts from the SC Society of Association Executives during a luncheon at their annual conference at the Hilton Head Island Marriott Resort and Spa on Monday, June 3. Congratulations, team!


  • 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 next 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. Teachers, click here to register.
  • 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?
  • The Ed Fund Trustees are meeting this month to comb through scholarship submissions. Thank you to everyone who submitted an application, and best of luck! Winners will be announced around September.
    • Save the date: Scholarship winners are invited to attend the Scholarship Recognition luncheon at our annual fall conference, Fall Fest! The luncheon will be on Friday, November 15, at the Columbia Metro Convention Center. Email and let us know you’re coming (and who’s coming with you!).


  • SCACPA Connect is our professional networking platform where members can engage and interact with each other. Your SCACPA Connect login credentials are the same as your login information. You can use SCACPA Connect to ask questions where other members and experts can give answers or advice. With the complexity of the new tax law, we know it is important to create a space where our CPAs can get answers fast – SCACPA Connect allows you to do just that. We answer your questions about Connect here.
  • Don’t forget to follow us on social media (FacebookTwitterLinkedIn and Instagram) for quick, real-time updates! We share the latest breaking news on social media first, so go ahead and give us a Like and Follow!
  • SCACPA is currently looking for volunteers to serve on the Member Engagement Committee and GAP (Growing the Accounting Profession) Committee. Anyone who would like more information or is interested in volunteering on either committee should contact the Communications team at Check out our Volunteer page for more info.


  • Registration is already open for our annual fall conference, Fall Fest! Session registration will be available soon. With recording breaking attendance at Fall Fest in 2018, we are hopeful to set another record this year – and we hope you’re part of it.
    • The Silent Auction is a seasoned veteran event at Fall Fest, and we need items for bidding! In 2018, participants bid on anything from wine packages to vacations, and everything in between. Contact us at for more information on donating items to the Silent Auction.
  • SCACPA is excited to continue the partnership with Melisa Galasso, CPA, of Galasso Learning Solutions. With over 15 years of experience in the accounting profession, Melisa closely monitors regulatory bodies for changes in auditing and accounting guidance and serves as a subject matter expert in implementing the updated guidance. Find Melisa’s first SCACPA blog post here. You can also find all of her video blogs on our YouTube channel.
    • The auditor’s report is getting a facelift, and Melisa’s here to tell you all about it! Join her for a one-hour rebroadcast course on July 25, covering the New AICPA Auditor’s Report. Read more and register here.
  • The All Inclusive Membership model allows us to modify our CPE schedule to best fit your needs. We are rebroadcasting GASB Update – Yellow Book on July 23 at 8:30AM and Auditing Under the New Uniform Guidance (Single Audit) – Yellow Book on July 24 at 8:30AM.
